  title={Toward a global description of nuclear charge radii: Exploring the Fayans energy density functional},
  author={Paul-Gerhard Reinhard and Witold Nazarewicz},
  journal={Physical Review C},
In this work, we study the odd-even effect in binding energies and charge radii, and systematic behavior of differential radii, to identify the underlying components of the effective nuclear interaction. We apply nuclear density functional theory using a family of Fayans and Skyrme energy density functionals fitted to similar datasets but using different optimization protocols. We inspect various correlations between differential charge radii, odd-even staggering in energies and radii, and… 
Statistical correlations of nuclear quadrupole deformations and charge radii
Background: Shape deformations and charge radii, basic properties of atomic nuclei, are influenced by both the global features of the nuclear force and the nucleonic shell structure. As functions of
Charge radii in covariant density functional theory: A global view
A systematic global investigation of differential charge radii has been performed within the CDFT framework for the first time. Theoretical results obtained with conventional covariant energy density
Fayans Functional: Self-Consistent Description of Isospin Excitations
Abstract The energy density functional proposed earlier by Fayans and his coauthors is modified in such a way as to apply it in fully self-consistent calculations of isobaric analog resonances (IAR)
Constraining the density dependence of the symmetry energy with nuclear data and astronomical observations in the KIDS framework
The KIDS framework for the nuclear equation of state (EoS) and energy density functional (EDF) offers the possibility to explore symmetry-energy (SE) parameters such as J (value at saturation
Proton superfluidity and charge radii in proton-rich calcium isotopes
One of the most important global properties of the atomic nucleus is its size. Experimentally determined nuclear charge radii carry unique information on the nuclear force and complex dynamics of
Charge radii of exotic potassium isotopes challenge nuclear theory and the magic character of N = 32
Nuclear charge radii are sensitive probes of different aspects of the nucleon–nucleon interaction and the bulk properties of nuclear matter, providing a stringent test and challenge for nuclear
Measurement and microscopic description of odd–even staggering of charge radii of exotic copper isotopes
Nuclear charge radii globally scale with atomic mass number A as A 1∕3 , and isotopes with an odd number of neutrons are usually slightly smaller in size than their even-neutron neighbours. This
Global Calculations of Beta-Decay Properties Based on the Fayans Functional
An effective approximation to a fully self-consistent global description of beta-decay properties of nuclei within the theory of finite Fermi systems is presented. It is based on describing the
The kinks in charge radii across N = 82 and 126 revisited
We revisit the studies of the isotopic shift in the charge radii of {\it even-even} isotopes of Sn and Pb nuclei at $N$ = 82, and 126, respectively, within the relativistic mean-field and
