Title: Computing the dipole polarizability of Ca 48 with increased precision

Abstract

Here, we compute the electric dipole polarizability of 48Ca with an increased precision by including more correlations than in previous studies. Employing the coupled-cluster method we go beyond single and double excitations and include leading-order three-particle-three-hole (3p-3h) excitations for the ground state, excited states, and the similarity-transformed operator. We study electromagnetic sum rules, such as the bremsstrahlung sum rule m0 and the polarizability sum rule αD using interactions from chiral effective field theory. To gauge the quality of our coupled-cluster approximations we perform several benchmarks with the effective interaction hyperspherical harmonics approach in 4He and with self consistent Green's function in 16O. We compute the dipole polarizability of 48Ca employing the chiral interaction N2LOsat and the 1.8/2.0 (EM). We find that the effect of 3p-3h excitations in the ground state is small for 1.8/2.0 (EM) but non-negligible for N2LOsat. The addition of these new correlations allows us to improve the precision of our 48Ca calculations and reconcile the recently reported discrepancy between coupled-cluster results based on these interactions and the experimentally determined αD from proton inelastic scattering in 48Ca. For the computation of electromagnetic and polarizability sum rules, the inclusion of leading-order 3p-3h excitations in the ground state is important,more » while it is less so for the excited states and the similarity-transformed dipole operator.« less
