Pairing Properties of Symmetric Nuclear Matter in Relativistic Mean Field Theory


The properties of pairing correlations in symmetric nuclear matter are studied in the relativistic mean field (RMF) theory with the effective interaction PK1. Considering well-known problem that the pairing gap at Fermi surface calculated with RMF effective interactions are three times larger than that with Gogny force, an effective factor in the particle-particle channel is introduced. For the RMF calculation with PK1, an effective factor 0.76 give a maximum pairing gap 3.2 MeV at Fermi momentum 0.9 fmβˆ’1^{-1}, which are consistent with the result with Gogny force.Comment: 14 pages, 6 figures
