It is investigated why the root-meansquare radius of the point neutron distribution is smaller by about 0.1 fm in non-relativistic mean-field models than in relativistic ones. The difference is shown to stem from the different values of the product of the effective mass and the strength of the one-body potential in the two frameworks. The values of those quantities are constrained by the Hugenholtz-Van Hove theorem. The neutron skin is not a simple function of the symmetry potential, but… Expand
