Self-consistent mean-field models for nuclear structure
The authors review the present status of self-consistent mean-field (SCMF) models for describing nuclear structure and low-energy dynamics. These models are presented as effective energy-densityExpand
Nuclear energy density optimization: Large deformations
A new Skyrme-like energy density suitable for studies of strongly elongated nuclei has been determined in the framework of the Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov theory using the recently developed model-based,Expand
Information content of a new observable: The case of the nuclear neutron skin
We address two questions pertaining to the uniqueness and usefulness of a new observable: (i) Considering the current theoretical knowledge, what novel information does new measurement bring in? (ii)Expand
Stopping of heavy ions in plasmas at strong coupling
Abstract Standard approaches to the energy loss of ions in plasmas like the dielectric linear response or the binary collision model are strictly valid only in the regimes where the plasma is closeExpand
Variations on a theme by Skyrme: A systematic study of adjustments of model parameters
We present a survey of the phenomenological adjustment of the parameters of the Skyrme-Hartree-Fock (SHF) model for a self-consistent description of nuclear structure and low-energy excitations. AExpand
Error Estimates of Theoretical Models: a Guide
This guide offers suggestions/insights on uncertainty quantification of nuclear structure models. We discuss a simple approach to statistical-error estimates, strategies to assess systematic errors,Expand
Laser-driven nonlinear cluster dynamics
Laser excitation of nanometer-sized atomic and molecular clusters offers various opportunities to explore and control ultrafast many-particle dynamics. Whereas weak laser fields allow the analysis ofExpand
Abstract Recent experimental developments give more and more access to cluster excitations beyond the regime of linear response. Most theoretical descriptions of the induced nonlinear electronExpand
Comparison of self-interaction-corrections for metal clusters
We present a simple density-averaged approach to the self-interaction-correction (SIC) methods of density functional theory. We discuss both formal properties and applications, consideringExpand
