Title: Study of resonant structures in a deformed mean field by the contour deformation method in momentum space

Abstract

Solution of the momentum space Schroedinger equation in the case of deformed fields is being addressed. In particular it is shown that a complete set of single-particle states that includes bound, resonant, and complex continuum states may be obtained by the contour deformation method. This generalized basis in the complex energy plane is known as a Berggren basis. The momentum space Schroedinger equation is an integral equation that is easily solved by matrix diagonalization routines even for the case of deformed fields. The method is demonstrated for axial symmetry and a fictitious ''deformed {sup 5}He'' but may be extended to more general deformation and applied to truly deformed halo nuclei.

  • In certain scenarios of deformed relativistic symmetries relevant for noncommutative field theories particles exhibit a momentum space described by a non-Abelian group manifold. Starting with a formulation of phase space for such particles which allows for a generalization to include group-valued momenta we discuss quantization of the corresponding field theory. Focusing on the particular case of {kappa}-deformed phase space we construct the one-particle Hilbert space and show how curvature in momentum space leads to an ambiguity in the quantization procedure reminiscent of the ambiguities one finds when quantizing fields in curved space-times. The tools gathered in the discussion on quantizationmore » allow for a clear definition of the basic deformed field mode operators and two-point function for {kappa}-quantum fields.« less
  • Microscopic analysis of the quantum (shell) effects related to the presence of the hexadecapole ({ital Y}{sub 4{mu}}; {mu}=0,2,4) components in the nuclear mean field is performed for the superdeformed nuclei in the mass {ital A} {similar_to} 150 region using the deformed Woods-Saxon potential. No shell effects favoring the {ital C}{sub 4}-symmetry are found. The calculations indicate, however, the existence of the {alpha}{sub 44}-deformation driving orbitals whose occupation might induce an {alpha}{sub 44}-polarization effect. For {sup 149}Gd and {sup 153}Dy nuclei, in which the existence of the {ital C}{sub 4}-symmetry effects is suspected, properties of several excited particle-hole configuration are analyzed.
  • We study the magnetic ordering transition for a system of harmonically trapped ultracold fermions with repulsive interactions in a cubic optical lattice, within a real-space extension of dynamical mean-field theory. Using a quantum Monte Carlo impurity solver, we establish that antiferromagnetic correlations are signaled, at strong coupling, by an enhanced double occupancy. This signature is directly accessible experimentally and should be observable well above the critical temperature for long-range order. Dimensional aspects appear less relevant than naively expected.
  • The framework of relativistic self-consistent mean-field 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 angular-momentum and particle-number 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 mean-field+Lipkin-Nogami BCS equations, with a constraint on the mass quadrupole moment. The model employs a relativistic point-coupling (contact) nucleon-nucleon effective interaction in the particle-hole channel, and a density-independent {delta}-interaction in the pairing channel. Illustrative calculations aremore » performed for {sup 24}Mg, {sup 32}S, and {sup 36}Ar, and compared with results obtained employing the model developed in the first part of this work, i.e., without particle-number projection, as well as with the corresponding nonrelativistic models based on Skyrme and Gogny effective interactions.« less
