The diagonal correlation energy due to n-n, p-p, and n-p pairing is shown to resolve the discrepancies between shell gaps determined from binding energy differences and the gaps calculated with Woods-Saxon potentials or with other mean-field models. The difference in diagonal correlation energy between an N=Z nucleus with filled shells and the nucleus with… CONTINUE READING
