The fourth-order symmetry energy of nuclear matter and symmetry energy coefficients of finite nuclei using extended semi-empirical mass formula

An extended nuclear mass formula has been used by considering the bulk, surface and coulomb contributions to the nuclear mass. In this mass formula, the fourth-order symmetry energy coefficient

The Fourth-Order Symmetry Energy of Finite Nuclei

The fourth-order symmetry energy Esym,4(A) of heavy nuclei is investigated based on the Skyrme energy density functional in combination with a local density approximation. Unlike some previous works,

Nuclear fourth-order symmetry energy and its effects on neutron star properties in the relativistic Hartree-Fock theory

Adopting the density dependent relativistic mean-field (RMF) and relativistic Hartree-Fock (RHF) approaches, the properties of the nuclear fourth-order symmetry energy $S_4$ are studied within the

Nuclear matter and neutron star properties with the extended Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model

An extended Nambu-Jona-Lasinio (eNJL) model with nucleons as the degrees of freedom is used to investigate properties of nuclear matter and neutron stars (NSs), including the binding energy and

Relativistic self-energy decomposition of nuclear symmetry energy and equation of state of neutron matter within QCD sum rules

An abridged edition of Abstract: Properties of the relativistic nucleon self-energy decomposition of the symmetry energy as well as the equation of state (EOS) of pure neutron matter (PNM) are

Forms of the Symmetry Energy Relevant to Neutron Stars

The results point out that the applied approximations lead to modifications of the equilibrium proton fractions and equation of state, especially in their high-density limit, but this effect is small near the saturation density n 0 .

Nuclear symmetry energy parameters from neutron skin thickness in 208Pb and electric dipole polarizability in 68Ni , 120Sn and 208Pb

Observables like neutron skin thickness and electric dipole polarizability in heavy nuclei are considered as most effective probes for the density dependence of nuclear symmetry energy at

Accurate nuclear symmetry energy at finite temperature within a Brueckner-Hartree-Fock approach

We compute the free energy of asymmetric nuclear matter in a Brueckner-Hartree-Fock approach at finite temperature, paying particular attention to the dependence on isospin asymmetry. The first- and

Anomalous quartic term in the expansion of the symmetry energy

The quartic term in the framework of relativistic mean field theory with inclusion of scalar meson interactions is investigated. It is shown that the quartic term in the asymmetric expansion of



Higher-order symmetry energy of nuclear matter and the inner edge of neutron star crusts

The parabolic approximation to the equation of state of the isospin asymmetric nuclear matter (ANM) is widely used in the literature to make predictions for the nuclear structure and the neutron star

Nuclear matter fourth-order symmetry energy in the relativistic mean field models

Within the nonlinear relativistic mean field model, we derive the analytical expression of the nuclear matter fourth-order symmetry energy $E_{sym,4}(\rho)$. Based on two accurately calibrated

In the framework of an equation of state (EoS) constructed from a momentum and density-dependent finite-range two-body effective interaction, the quantitative magnitudes of the different symmetry

Divergence of the isospin-asymmetry expansion of the nuclear equation of state in many-body perturbation theory

The isospin-asymmetry dependence of the nuclear matter equation of state obtained from microscopic chiral two- and three-body interactions in second-order many-body perturbation theory is examined in

Quartic isospin asymmetry energy of nuclear matter from chiral pion-nucleon dynamics

Based on a chiral approach to nuclear matter, we calculate the quartic term in the expansion of the equation of state of isospin-asymmetric nuclear matter. The contributions to the quartic isospin

Low-density nuclear matter with quantum molecular dynamics: The role of the symmetry energy

We study the effect of isospin-dependent nuclear forces on the pasta phase in the inner crust of neutron stars. To this end we model the crust within the framework of quantum molecular dynamics. For
