Title: Local density approximation for a perturbative equation of state

Abstract

Knowledge of a series expansion of the equation of state provides a deep insight into the physical nature of a quantum system. Starting from a generic 'perturbative' equation of state of a homogeneous ultracold gas we make predictions for the properties of the gas in the presence of harmonic confinement. The local density approximation is used to obtain the chemical potential, total and release energies, Thomas-Fermi size, and density profile of a trapped system in three-, two-, and one-dimensional geometries. The frequencies of the lowest breathing modes are calculated using scaling and sum-rule approaches and could be used in an experiment as a high-precision tool for obtaining the expansion terms of the equation of state. The derived formalism is applied to dilute Bose and Fermi gases in different dimensions and to integrable one-dimensional models. The physical meaning of the expansion terms in a number of systems is discussed.

  • We study the ground-state properties of heavy closed-shell nuclei such as {sup 48}Ca, {sup 90}Zr, {sup 120}Sn, and {sup 208}Pb as well as {sup 4}He, {sup 16}O, and {sup 40}Ca. Similar to our recent work, the local density approximation in the harmonic oscillator basis and different channel-dependent effective two-body interactions that are generated through the lowest-order constrained variational calculation for asymmetric nuclear matter with the Reid68Day, Reid68, and {delta}-Reid68 potentials are used. Unlike nuclear matter, it is shown that Reid68 potential gives ground-state binding energies closer to the experimental data with respect to the {delta}-Reid68 potential and there is notmore » much difference between Reid68 and Reid68Day potentials, which have been define up to J=5. The different channel-dependent effective interactions (J>2) and one- and two-body density distribution functions are discussed and they are compared with the results of other approaches such as the Brueckner local density approximation, correlated basis function, variational fermion hypernetted chain, variational cluster Monte Carlo, Brueckner-Hartree-Fock, fermionic molecular dynamics, and coupled cluster. Finally it is concluded that the three-body force (isobar degrees of freedom) is very important for light (heavy) nuclei because in the most of recent many-body calculations, it is observed that the available two-body nuclear forces usually underbind light nuclei and overbind heavy nuclei and nuclear matter.« less
  • Hybrid quantum mechanics/molecular mechanics (QM/MM) methods provide an attractive way to closely retain the accuracy of the QM method with the favorable computational scaling of the MM method. Therefore, it is not surprising that QM/MM methods are being increasingly used for large chemical/biological systems. Hybrid equation of motion coupled cluster singles doubles/effective fragment potential (EOM-CCSD/EFP) methods have been developed over the last few years to understand the effect of solvents and other condensed phases on the electronic spectra of chromophores. However, the computational cost of this approach is still dominated by the steep scaling of the EOM-CCSD method. In thismore » work, we propose and implement perturbative approximations to the EOM-CCSD method in this hybrid scheme to reduce the cost of EOM-CCSD/EFP. The timings and accuracy of this hybrid approach is tested for calculation of ionization energies, excitation energies, and electron affinities of microsolvated nucleic acid bases (thymine and cytosine), phenol, and phenolate.« less
