Title: Fast and accurate calculation of dilute quantum gas using Uehling–Uhlenbeck model equation

Abstract

The Uehling–Uhlenbeck (U–U) model equation is studied for the fast and accurate calculation of a dilute quantum gas. In particular, the direct simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method is used to solve the U–U model equation. DSMC analysis based on the U–U model equation is expected to enable the thermalization to be accurately obtained using a small number of sample particles and the dilute quantum gas dynamics to be calculated in a practical time. Finally, the applicability of DSMC analysis based on the U–U model equation to the fast and accurate calculation of a dilute quantum gas is confirmed by calculating the viscosity coefficient of a Bose gas on the basis of the Green–Kubo expression and the shock layer of a dilute Bose gas around a cylinder.

  • Asymmetry dependent potentials, which produce neutron skins, are utilized in the Boltzmann-Uehling-Uhlenbeck equation in order to simulate intermediate energy heavy-ion collisions. Compared to calculations done with the commonly used equation of states, the calculations which use the asymmetry dependent potentials produce neutron rich neck regions which reduces the orbiting of the major fragments and can produce primary, neutron rich, intermediate velocity ( neck'') fragments.
  • We derive the self-consistent relativistic Boltzmann-Uehling-Uhlenbeck (RBUU) equation for the delta distribution function within the framework which we have done for nucleon{close_quote}s. In our approach, the {Delta} isobars are treated in essentially the same way as nucleons. Both mean field and collision terms of {Delta}{close_quote}s RBUU equation are derived from the same effective Lagrangian and presented analytically. We calculate the in-medium {ital N}{Delta} elastic and inelastic scattering cross sections up to twice nuclear matter density and the results show that the in-medium cross sections deviate substantially from Cugnon{close_quote}s parametrization that is commonly used in the transport model. {copyright} {ital 1996more » The American Physical Society.}« less
  • To calculate the nucleon inclusive spectra obtained from high energy heavy ion collisions, we derive a linearized form of the Uehling--Uhlenbeck equation. The solution of this equation is given by a sum of multiple collision contributions each of which in the eikonal approximation factorizes in a geometrical and a dynamical part. To a good approximation the dynamical part turns out, for collision numbers larger than one, and in the eikonal approximation, to be the solution of a Fokker--Planck-type transport equation. The momentum distribution after the first collision is determined by quasi free nucleon--nucleon scattering. This quasifree component is, compared tomore » the corresponding result obtained with the classical Boltzmann equation, in certain kinematical regions strongly suppressed due to Pauli blocking. It is shown that this suppression is still appreciable in the nucleon inclusive cross section.« less
  • Two-proton correlation functions measured for the {sup 14}N+{sup 27}Al reaction at {ital E}/{ital A}=75 MeV are compared to correlation functions predicted for collision geometries obtained from numerical solutions of the Boltzmann-Uehling-Uhlenbeck (BUU) equation. The calculations are in rather good agreement with the experimental correlation function, indicating that the BUU equation gives a reasonable description of the space-time evolution of the reaction.
  • A relativistic Vlasov-Uehling-Uhlenbeck equation for the nuclear phase-space distribution function is derived from the Walecka model through the use of semiclassical, local, and Born approximations.
