Application of density dependent parametrization models to asymmetric nuclear matter
Abstract
Density dependent parametrization models of the nucleonmeson effective couplings, including the isovector scalar {delta}field, are applied to asymmetric nuclear matter. The nuclear equation of state and the neutron star properties are studied in an effective Lagrangian density approach, using the relativistic mean field hadron theory. It is known that the introduction of a {delta}meson in the constant coupling scheme leads to an increase of the symmetry energy at high density and so to larger neutron star masses, in a pure nucleonlepton scheme. We use here a more microscopic density dependent model of the nucleonmeson couplings to study the properties of neutron star matter and to reexamine the {delta}field effects in asymmetric nuclear matter. Our calculations show that, due to the increase of the effective {delta} coupling at high density, with density dependent couplings the neutron star masses in fact can be even reduced.

Using various relativistic meanfield models, including nonlinear ones with meson field selfinteractions, models with densitydependent mesonnucleon couplings, and pointcoupling models without meson fields, we have studied the isospindependent bulk and singleparticle properties of asymmetric nuclear matter. In particular, we have determined the density dependence of nuclear symmetry energy from these different relativistic meanfield models and compared the results with the constraints recently extracted from analyses of experimental data on isospin diffusion and isotopic scaling in intermediate energy heavyion collisions as well as from measured isotopic dependence of the giant monopole resonances in evenA Sn isotopes. Among the 23 parameter setsmore »

Effects of isospin and momentum dependent interactions on thermal properties of asymmetric nuclear matter
Thermal properties of asymmetric nuclear matter are studied within a selfconsistent thermal model using an isospin and momentumdependent interaction (MDI) constrained by the isospin diffusion data in heavyion collisions, a momentumindependent interaction (MID), and an isoscalar momentumdependent interaction (eMDYI). In particular, we study the temperature dependence of the isospindependent bulk and singleparticle properties, the mechanical and chemical instabilities, and liquidgas phase transition in hot asymmetric nuclear matter. Our results indicate that the temperature dependence of the equation of state and the symmetry energy are not so sensitive to the momentum dependence of the interaction. The symmetry energy at fixed densitymore » 
Isospin dependent properties of asymmetric nuclear matter
The density dependence of nuclear symmetry energy is determined from a systematic study of the isospin dependent bulk properties of asymmetric nuclear matter using the isoscalar and isovector components of the density dependent M3Y interaction. The incompressibility K{sub {infinity}} for the symmetric nuclear matter, the isospin dependent part K{sub asy} of the isobaric incompressibility, and the slope L are all in excellent agreement with the constraints recently extracted from measured isotopic dependence of the giant monopole resonances in evenA Sn isotopes, from the neutron skin thickness of nuclei, and from analyses of experimental data on isospin diffusion and isotopic scalingmore »
