@article{Nomura2017ShapephaseTI, title={Shape-phase transitions in odd-mass $\gamma$ -soft nuclei with mass A ≈130}, author={K. Nomura and Tamara Nikvsi'c and Dario Vretenar}, journal={Physical Review C}, year={2017}, volume={96}, pages={014304} }

Quantum phase transitions between competing equilibrium shapes of nuclei with an odd number of nucleons are explored using a microscopic framework of nuclear energy density functionals and a fermion-boson coupling model. The boson Hamiltonian for the even-even core nucleus, as well as the spherical single-particle energies and occupation probabilities of unpaired nucleons, are completely determined by a constrained self-consistent mean-field calculation for a specific choice of the energy…
