Uncertainty analysis of ^{208}Pb neutron skin predictions with chiral interactions
Abstract
Here, we report predictions for the neutron skin in ^{208}Pb using chiral two and threebody interactions at increasing orders of chiral effective field theory and varying resolution scales. Closely related quantities, such as the slope of the symmetry energy, are also discussed. As a result, the sensitivity of the skin to just pure neutron matter pressure when going from order 2 to order 4 of chiral effective theory is singled out in a set of calculations that employ an empirical equation of state for symmetric nuclear matter.
