Solution of self-consistent equations for the N3LO nuclear energy density functional in spherical symmetry. The program hosphe (v1.02)

Abstract We present solution of self-consistent equations for the N^3 LO nuclear energy density functional. We derive general expressions for the mean fields expressed as differential operators depending on densities and for the densities expressed in terms of derivatives of wave functions. These expressions are then specified to the case of spherical symmetry. We also present the computer program hosphe (v1.02), which solves the self-consistent equations by using the expansion of single-particle wave... Title of program: HOSPHE (v1.02) Catalogue Id: AEGK_v1_0 Nature of problem The nuclear mean-field methods constitute principal tools of a description of nuclear states in heavy nuclei. Within the Local Density Approximation with gradient corrections up to N 3 LO [1], the nuclear mean-field is local and contains derivative operators up to sixth order. The locality allows for an effective and fast solution of the self-consistent equations.
