We propose a self-consistent quasiparticle random-phase approximation (QRPA) plus quasiparticle-vibration coupling (QPVC) model with Skyrme interactions to describe the width and the line shape of giant resonances in open-shell nuclei, in which the effect of superfluidity should be taken into account in both the ground state and the excited states. We apply the new model to the Gamow-Teller resonance in the superfluid nucleus Sn120, including both the isoscalar spin-triplet and the isovector…

Time-Reversed Particle-Vibration Loops and Nuclear Gamow-Teller Response.
TLDR
It is found that this new correlation mechanism is fully responsible for the appearance of the strength in the (n, p) branch and a very good agreement up to excitation energies beyond the giant resonance region when taking into account a phenomenological admixture of the isovector spin monopole transitions.
Coupling charge-exchange vibrations to nucleons in a relativistic framework: Effect on Gamow-Teller transitions and β-decay half-lives
The nuclear response theory for isospin-transfer modes in the relativistic particle-vibration coupling framework is extended to include coupling of single nucleons to isospin-flip (charge-exchange)

TLDR
A fully self-consistent subtracted second random-phase approximation for charge-exchange processes with Skyrme energy-density functionals with implications for the computation of nuclear matrix elements for neutrinoless double-β decay in the same framework.
Towards a self-consistent dynamical nuclear model
Density Functional Theory (DFT) is a powerful and accurate tool exploited in Nuclear Physics to investigate the ground-state and some collective properties of nuclei along the whole nuclear chart.
Beyond mean-field description of Gamow-Teller resonances and β-decay
β-decay half-lives set the time scale of the rapid neutron capture process, and are therefore essential for understanding the origin of heavy elements in the universe. The random-phase approximation
Particle-vibration coupling for giant resonances beyond the diagonal approximation
A self-consistent particle-vibration coupling (PVC) model without diagonal approximation is presented. The diagonal approximation, that neglects completely the interaction between the doorway states,
Self-consistency in the phonon space of the particle-phonon coupling model
In the paper the non-linear generalization of the time blocking approximation (TBA) is presented. The TBA is one of the versions of the extended random-phase approximation (RPA) developed within the
