Pair correlation in deformed neutrondripline nuclei: The eigenphase formalism and asymptotic behavior
Abstract
The HartreeFockBogoliubov (HFB) equation for deformed nuclei in a simplified model is solved in coordinate space with correct asymptotic boundary conditions, in order to study the pair correlation in nuclei close to the neutron drip line. The eigenphase formalism is applied, when the upper components of HFB radial wave functions are continuum wave functions. Calculated occupation probabilities of various Nilsson orbits in the HFB ground state vary smoothly from the region of the upper components being bound wave functions to that of those being continuum wave functions. It is shown that weaklybound or resonancelike {omega}{sup {pi}}=1/2{sup +} Nilsson orbits contribute little to the occupation probability of the HFB ground state, while the contribution by the orbits with a large value of {omega}, of which the smallest possible orbitalangularmomentum is neither 0 nor 1, may be approximately estimated using the BCS formula.

Solving the simplified model of the HartreeFock Bogoliubov equation in coordinate space with the correct asymptotic boundary conditions, the spinorbit splitting, occupation probabilities, effective pairgap, mean square radius, and spinresponse function are studied for weakly bound p neutrons. As the binding energy of p{sub 3/2} neutrons becomes small or approaches zero, the spinorbit splitting p{sub 3/2}p{sub 1/2} in the onebody potential drastically decreases and, at the same time, the effective pairgap for the p neutrons becomes small, while the occupation probability of the p{sub 3/2} level decreases only slightly. Consequently, in that limit lowlying broader spin response with almost constantmore »

Dineutron correlation and soft dipole excitation in medium mass neutronrich nuclei near drip line
The neutron pairing correlation and the soft dipole excitation in medium mass nuclei near the drip line are investigated from the viewpoint of the dineutron correlation. Numerical analyses based on the coordinatespace HartreeFockBogoliubov method and the continuum quasiparticle random phase approximation are performed for eveneven {sup 1824}O,{sup 5058}Ca, and {sup 8086}Ni. A clear signature of the dineutron correlation is found in the ground state; two neutrons are correlated at short relative distances < or approx. 2 fm with large probability {approx}50%. The soft dipole excitation is influenced strongly by the neutron pairing correlation, and it accompanies a large transition densitymore » 
GamowTeller {beta}{sup +} decay of deformed nuclei near the proton drip line
Using a quasiparticle TammDancoff approximation (TDA) based on deformed HartreeFock (HF) calculations with Skyrme interactions, the distribution of the GamowTeller (GT) {beta}{sup +} decay strength is estimated for the HF local minima of eveneven deformed nuclei near the proton drip line in the region of 28{lt}{ital Z}{lt}66. The distribution often depends sensitively on the nuclear shape (namely, oblate or prolate). In the region of {ital Z}{lt}50 the possibility of observing {beta}delayed proton emission depends sensitively on the excess of {ital Z} over {ital Z}={ital N}. In the region of {ital Z}{gt}50 almost the entire estimated GT strength is found tomore » 
Pygmy dipole mode in deformed neutronrich Mg isotopes close to the drip line
We investigate the microscopic structure of the lowlying isovectordipole excitation mode in neutronrich {sup 36,38,40}Mg close to the drip line by means of the deformed quasiparticle randomphase approximation employing the Skyrme and the local pairing energydensity functionals. It is found that the lowlying bump structure above the neutron emissionthreshold energy develops when the drip line is approached, and that the isovector dipole strength at E{sub x}<10 MeV exhausts about 6.0% of the classical ThomasReicheKuhn dipole sum rule in {sup 40}Mg. We obtained the collective dipole modes at around 810 MeV in Mg isotopes, that consist of many twoquasiparticle excitations ofmore » 
Pair correlations near the neutron drip line
A theory of pairing in weakly bound nuclei is presented. The nucleus is treated as a threebody system consisting of two interacting nucleons together with a structureless core. The pairing interaction is modelled by a densitydependent contact interaction. It is constrained to the free nucleon interaction at low density. Numerically, the Hamiltonian equation is solved by a twoparticle Green's function method in coordinate space. Given the single particle resonance energy of {sup 10}Li, the theory reproduces the marginal binding of {sup 11}Li. The large electric dipole stength in {sup 11}Li found experimentally is also accounted for. The nucleus {sup 14}Bemore »
