# Toward a global description of nuclear charge radii: Exploring the Fayans energy density functional

@article{Reinhard2017TowardAG, 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}, year={2017}, volume={95}, pages={064328} }

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…
