Calculation of equilibrium deformations of nuclei with the use of single-particle infinite potentials

  • 15 Accesses


Calculation of equilibrium deformations of light nuclei and rare-earth nuclei is carried out by a method suggested in [1]. For light nuclei an anisotropic oscillator potential is used, while for the rare-earth domain we employ Nilsson's potential [2]. An isospin dependence of the oscillator frequencies is employed. The results agree qualitatively with calculations made according to Strutinsky's method [3].
