Title: Nuclear matter low lying collective modes in a finite size model of nucleons

Abstract

We study the effects of finite size of nucleons on the relativistic equation of state of symmetric nuclear matter. The Landau parameters and the low lying collective modes at zero temperature are examined within a model of composite nucleons.

  • We study the properties of cold asymmetric nuclear matter at high density, applying the quark meson coupling model with excluded volume corrections in the framework of the Landau theory of relativistic Fermi liquids. We discuss the role of the finite spatial extension of composite baryons on dynamical and statistical properties such as the Landau parameters, the compressibility, and the symmetry energy. We have also calculated the low-lying collective eigenfrequencies arising from the collisionless quasiparticle transport equation, considering both unstable and stable modes. An overall analysis of the excluded volume correlations on the collective properties is performed.
  • A new class of low-lying collective modes in nuclei is discussed and experiments to detect these modes are suggested.
  • The general collective (or Frankfurt) model (GCM) is applied to the barium isotopes with {ital A}=124--132. A good description of the experimental level schemes is obtained and in particular, the staggering effect in the quasi-{gamma} bands of these nuclei is reproduced. The description of the {ital E}2 transition strengths is also satisfactory but the deviations observed for specific weak transitions indicate some crudeness in the present quadrupole operator of the model. The comparison of the derived potential energy surfaces (PES) with microscopic nuclear shape calculations shows an overall reasonable agreement. The description of the spectroscopic properties is compared to themore » results obtained in the framework of other collective models used in the {ital A}{approx}130 mass region. The structure of the GCM wave functions is investigated and correspondences with the quantum numbers of the interacting boson approximation (IBA) wave functions are considered.« less
  • We present a systematic analysis of the effects induced by tensor correlations on low-lying collective states of magic nuclei, by using the fully self-consistent random phase approximation (RPA) model with Skyrme interactions. The role of the tensor correlations is analyzed in detail in the case of quadrupole (2{sup +}) and octupole (3{sup -}) low-lying collective states in {sup 208}Pb. The example of {sup 40}Ca is also discussed, as well as the case of magnetic dipole states (1{sup +}).
  • We discuss collective monopole and quadrupole excitations of a collisionless gas of trapped Fermionic atoms in the superfluid BCS phase, comparing the fully microscopic Bogoliubov-de Gennes and quasiparticle random-phase approximation method with widely used semiclassical methods. In particular, the microscopic treatment allows us to address the questions of temperature dependence and nontrivial dependence on the trap parameters, which cannot be answered within the semiclassical approach. The main result concerning the temperature dependence is a strong Landau damping at intermediate temperature, which disappears in the limits of zero and critical temperature. However, even at zero temperature, considerable deviations from superfluid hydrodynamicsmore » are found if the trap frequency is of the same order of magnitude as the pairing gap.« less
