Charge and parity projected relativistic mean field model with pion for finite nuclei
Abstract
We construct a new relativistic mean field model by explicitly introducing a {pi}meson mean field with charge number and parity projection. We call this model the charge and parity projected relativistic mean field (CPPRMF) model. We take the chiral {sigma} model Lagrangian for the construction of finite nuclei. We apply this framework first for the {sup 4}He nucleus as a pilot case and study the role of the {pi}meson field on the structure of nuclei. We demonstrate that it is essential to solve the mean field equation with the variation introduced after the projection in order to take the pionic correlations into account explicitly. We study the groundstate properties of {sup 4}He by varying several parameters, such as the {sigma}meson mass and the {omega}meson coupling constant. We are able to construct a good ground state for {sup 4}He. A depression appears in the central region of the density distribution, and the second maximum and the position of the dip in the form factor of {sup 4}He are naturally obtained in the CPPRMF model.

The pion plays an important role in a nucleus. Until now, its effect was treated in terms of the Brueckner theory in nuclear matter through the Gmatrix effective interaction. The difficulty of handling the pion exchange interaction in a finite nucleus is through the strong tensor interaction due to the pion exchange. The tensor optimized shell model (TOSM) together with the unitary correlation operator method (UCOM) was demonstrated to provide a quantitative account of tensor correlation in a finite nucleus. We discuss in this paper the recently developed relativistic chiral mean field model for finite nuclei by taking the conceptmore »

Relativistic Chiral Mean Field Model with Projection for Finite Nuclei
We introduce first the facilities of RCNP; the cyclotron facility and GeV gamma facility. We discuss then the role of the pion on the ground state of finite nuclei. We treat the pions in the relativistic mean field approximation with the projection of the parity and the charge number by using the chiral Lagrangian, We find good ground state properties of 4He. 
Beyond the relativistic meanfield approximation. II. Configuration mixing of meanfield wave functions projected on angular momentum and particle number
The framework of relativistic selfconsistent meanfield models is extended to include correlations related to the restoration of broken symmetries and to fluctuations of collective variables. The generator coordinate method is used to perform configuration mixing of angularmomentum and particlenumber projected relativistic wave functions. The geometry is restricted to axially symmetric shapes, and the intrinsic wave functions are generated from the solutions of the relativistic meanfield+LipkinNogami BCS equations, with a constraint on the mass quadrupole moment. The model employs a relativistic pointcoupling (contact) nucleonnucleon effective interaction in the particlehole channel, and a densityindependent {delta}interaction in the pairing channel. Illustrative calculations aremore » 
Relativistic mean field approach with density dependent couplings for finite nuclei
We study finite nuclei within the relativistic mean field approach with density dependent couplings (RMFD) based on the relativistic BruecknerHartreeFock (RBHF) results on nuclear matter. We take the linear relativistic meanfield Lagrangian with mesons {sigma}, {omega}, {delta}, and {rho}, whose coupling constants with nucleons are determined so as to reproduce the RBHF results of nuclear matter at various densities and proton fractions. We apply the RMFD approach to various nuclei with spherical shape including unstable ones in the periodic table. We find satisfactory results on the nuclear properties. We emphasize here that the proton and neutron effective masses are largelymore » 
Retardation effect in finite nuclei in relativistic mean field theory
In the relativistic quantum mean field theory retardation effects are investigated for spherical nuclei throughout the Periodic Table. In a HartreeFock calculation retardation affects only the exchange terms; the exchange of {sigma}, {omega}, {rho}, and {pi} mesons and photons are included. We find the retardation is important only for the pion; for the other heavier mesons its contribution is negligibly small. The total binding energy of a nucleus can be changed by about 5% when retardation is included. For the electric charge density appreciable difference is observed only for {sup 208}Pb.
