The Scaling Approach to Nuclear Giant Multipole Resonances

  • Gottfried Holzwarth
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (volume 123)


In the following lectures we shall discuss an example where straight application of density-functional methods fails to give a useful approximation to the dynamical behaviour of a many-body system. We shall show, however, that a rather simple extension of the functional method allows for a reliable description of many dynamical features of collective motion in Fermi fluids.
