Quadrupole collective excitations within the self-consistent mean field approach

Speaker(s): Leszek Prochniak

The self-consistent mean field approach offers an efficient way to explain
many properties of nuclei especially in the medium-heavy and heavy mass
region.  I will discuss an application of the Adiabatic Time Dependent
Hartree-Fock-Bogolyubov (ATDHFB) theory to describe low-energy quadrupole
collective excitations in even-even nuclei.  The theory makes it possible to
calculate energy levels of excited states and electromagnetic transition
probabilities based solely on the microscopic input.  In most presented
cases theoretical results were obtained using the Skyrme-like energy
functionals.  I will also mention some open questions, e.g.  extension of
the collective space by adding variables for pairing degrees of freedom.
