Density Functional Theory Approach to Nuclear Fission
Abstract
The Skyrme nuclear energy density functional theory (DFT) is used to model neutroninduced fission in actinides. This paper focuses on the numerical implementation of the theory. In particular, it reports recent advances in DFT code development on leadership class computers, and presents a detailed analysis of the numerical accuracy of DFT solvers for nearscission calculations.
