Deducing the nuclear-matter incompressibility coefficient from data on isoscalar compression modes
Abstract.Accurate assessment of the value of the incompressibility coefficient, K, of symmetric nuclear matter, which is directly related to the curvature of the equation of state (EOS), is needed to
New Skyrme interaction with improved spin-isospin properties
A correct determination of the spin-isospin properties of the nuclear effective interaction should lead to, among other improvements, an accurate description of the Gamow-Teller resonance (GTR).

Microscopic determination of the nuclear incompressibility within the nonrelativistic framework
The nuclear incompressibility ${K}_{\ensuremath{\infty}}$ is deduced from measurements of the isoscalar giant monopole resonance (ISGMR) in medium-heavy nuclei, and the resulting value turns out to
Electric dipole polarizability and the neutron skin
The recent high-resolution measurement of the electric dipole (E1) polarizability {alpha}{sub D} in {sup 208}Pb [A. Tamii et al. Phys. Rev. Lett. 107 062502 (2011)] provides a unique constraint on
Calculation of stellar electron-capture cross sections on nuclei based on microscopic Skyrme functionals
A fully self-consistent microscopic framework for the evaluation of nuclear weak-interaction rates at finite temperature is introduced, based on Skyrme functionals. The single-nucleon basis and the
Exotic modes of excitation in atomic nuclei far from stability
We review recent studies of the evolution of collective excitations in atomic nuclei far from the valley of β-stability. Collective degrees of freedom govern essential aspects of nuclear structure,
Giant dipole resonance as a quantitative constraint on the symmetry energy
The possible constraints on the poorly determined symmetry part of the effective nuclear Hamiltonians or effective energy functionals, i.e., the so-called symmetry energy $S(\ensuremath{\rho})$, are
The neutron skin thickness from the measured electric dipole polarizability in 68Ni, 120Sn, and 208Pb
The information on the symmetry energy and its density dependence is deduced by comparing the available data on the electric dipole polarizability αD of 68Ni, 120Sn, and 208Pb with the predictions of
