This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018) Abstract We describe the new version 2.00d of the code hfbtho that solves the nuclear Skyrme-Hartree–Fock (HF) or Skyrme-Hartree–Fock–Bogoliubov (HFB) problem by using the cylindrical transformed deformed harmonic oscillator basis. In the new version, we have implemented the following features: (i) the modified Broyden method for non-linear problems, (ii) optional breaking of reflection symmetry, (iii) calculation of axial multipole moments, (iv) finite temperature formalism for the HFB method, (v) li... Title of program: HFBTHO v2.00d Catalogue Id: ADUI_v2_0 Nature of problem The solution of self-consistent mean-field equations for weakly-bound paired nuclei requires a correct description of the asymptotic properties of nuclear quasiparticle wave functions. In the present implementation, this is achieved by using the single-particle wave functions of the transformed harmonic oscillator, which allows for an accurate description of deformation effects and pairing correlations in nuclei arbitrarily close to the particle drip lines.
