# Solution of the Skyrme—Hartree—Fock equations in the Cartesian deformed harmonic oscillator basis II. The program HFODD

## Description

Abstract We describe the code HFODD which solves the nuclear Skyrme—Hartree—Fock problem by using the deformed Cartesian harmonic oscillator basis. The user has a possibility of choosing among various symmetries of the nuclear HF problem for rotating or nonrotating nuclei; they vary from the non-axial parity-invariant nuclear shapes, through those also breaking the intrinsic parity, towards the least-restrictive case corresponding to only one symmetry plane. The code provides a solution for a complete... Title of program: HFODD (v1.60r) Catalogue Id: ADFL_v1_0 Nature of problem The nuclear mean-field and an analysis of its symmetries in realistic cases are the main ingredients of a description of nuclear states. Within the Local Density Approximation, or for a zero-range velocity- dependent Skyrme interaction, the nuclear mean-field is local and velocity dependent. This allows an effective and fast solution of the self-consistent Hartree-Fock equations even for heavy nuclei and for different configurations, deformations, excitation energies, or angular momenta.
