Nuclear mass parameters and moments of inertia in a folded-Yukawa mean-field approach
Collective moments of inertia as well as quadrupole and octupole mass parameters are calculated in the perturbative cranking approximation using the folded-Yukawa mean-field potential written in Cartesian coordinates. The resulting single-particle Hamiltonian is required, as a minimal symmetry, to be invariant under z-signature and time-reversal transformations. The deformation of the nucleus is defined through a shape parametrization in cylindrical coordinates, with the so-called Funny–Hills and Trentalange–Koonin–Sierk shapes as typical and performant examples. To take pairing correlations into account, the standard set of BCS equations is solved with an approximation of constant pairing strength. The numerical program determining the quadrupole–octupole mass tensor and the moments of inertia, written in Fortran, is constructed according to the here presented study as an extension and application of the “yukawa” code for the diagonalization of the folded-Yukawa mean-field potential in the basis of a harmonic-oscillator in Cartesian coordinates, published in this journal in 2016.
