# Relativistic Hartree-Bogoliubov theory in coordinate space: Finite element solution for a nuclear system with spherical symmetry

## Description

Abstract A C++ code for the solution of the relativistic Hartree-Bogoliubov theory (RHB) in coordinate space is presented. The theory describes a nucleus as a relativistic system of baryons and mesons. The RHB model is applied in the self-consistent mean-field approximation to the description of ground state properties of spherical nuclei. Finite range interactions are included to describe pairing correlations and the coupling to particle continuum states. Finite element methods are used in the coordi... Title of program: spnRHBfem.cc Catalogue Id: ADFX_v1_0 Nature of problem The ground-state of a spherical nucleus is described in the framework of relativistic Hartree-Bogoliubov theory in coordinate space. The model describes a nucleus as a relativistic system of baryons and mesons. Nucleons interact in a relativistic covariant manner through the exchange of virtual mesons: the isoscalar scalar sigma-meson, the isoscalar vector omega-meson and the isovector vector rho-meson. The model is based on the one boson exchange description of the nucleon- nucleon interaction. ...
