Title: Chiral NNLO sat descriptions of nuclear multipole resonances within the random-phase approximation

We study nuclear multipole resonances in the framework of the random-phase approximation by using the chiral potential NNLO sat. This potential includes two- and three-body terms that have been simultaneously optimized to low-energy nucleon-nucleon scattering data and selected nuclear structure data. Our main focuses have been the isoscalar monopole, isovector dipole, and isoscalar quadrupole resonances of the closed-shell nuclei, 4He, 16,22,24O, and 40,48Ca. These resonance modes have been widely observed in experiment. In addition, we use a renormalized chiral potential Vlow-k, based on the N 3LO two-body potential by Entem and Machleidt [Phys. Rev. C 68, 041001 (2011)]. This introduces a dependency on the cutoff parameter used in the normalization procedure as reported in previous works by other groups. While NNLO sat can reasonably reproduce observed multipole resonances, it is not possible to find a single cutoff parameter for the V low-k potential that simultaneously describes the different types of resonance modes. The sensitivity to the cutoff parameter can be explained by missing induced three-body forces in the calculations. Our results for neutron-rich 22,24O show a mixing nature of isoscalar and isovector resonances in the dipole channel at low energies. We predict that 22O and 24O have low-energy isoscalar quadrupolemore » resonances at energies lower than 5 MeV.« less
