Self-consistent RPA calculations with Skyrme-type interactions: The skyrme_rpa program

Abstract Random Phase Approximation (RPA) calculations are nowadays an indispensable tool in nuclear physics studies. We present here a complete version implemented with Skyrme-type interactions, with the spherical symmetry assumption, that can be used in cases where the effects of pairing correlations and of deformation can be ignored. The full self-consistency between the Hartree–Fock mean field and the RPA excitations is enforced, and it is numerically controlled by comparison with energy-weighted ... Title of program: skyrme_rpa (v 1.00) Catalogue Id: AENF_v1_0 Nature of problem Systematic observations of excitation properties in finite nuclear systems can lead to improved knowledge of the nuclear matter equation of state as well as a better understanding of the effective interaction in the medium. This is the case of the nuclear giant resonances and low-lying collective excitations, which can be described as small amplitude collective motions in the framework of the Random Phase Approximation (RPA). This work provides a tool where one starts from an assumed form of nuc ...
