Abstract We describe a new version of the Ev8 code that solves the nuclear Skyrme–Hartree–Fock+BCS problem using a 3-dimensional cartesian mesh. Several new features have been implemented with respect to the earlier version published in 2005. In particular, the numerical accuracy has been improved for a given mesh size by (i) implementing a new solver to determine the Coulomb potential for protons, and (ii) implementing a more precise method to calculate the derivatives on a mesh that had already been... Title of program: Ev8 Catalogue Id: ADWA_v2_0 Nature of problem By means of the Hartree-Fock + BCS method for Skyrme-type energy density functionals, Ev8 allows the study of the evolution of the binding energy of even-even atomic nuclei for various shapes determined by the most general quadrupole and monopole constraints. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data ADWA_v1_0; EV8; 10.1016/j.cpc.2005.05.001 ADWA_v2_0; Ev8; 10.1016/j.cpc.2014.10.001 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018)
