# Assessing theoretical uncertainties in fission barriers of superheavy nuclei

@article{Agbemava2017AssessingTU, title={Assessing theoretical uncertainties in fission barriers of superheavy nuclei}, author={S. E. Agbemava and A. V. Afanasjev and Debasis Ray and Peter Ring}, journal={Physical Review C}, year={2017}, volume={95}, pages={054324} }

Theoretical uncertainties in the predictions of inner fission barrier heights in superheavy elements have been investigated in a systematic way for a set of state-of-the-art covariant energy density functionals which represent major classes of the functionals used in covariant density functional theory. They differ in basic model assumptions and fitting protocols. Both systematic and statistical uncertainties have been quantified where the former turn out to be larger. Systematic uncertainties…
