Calculation of interband level spacings in the constrained HartreeFock approach
Abstract
The constrained HartreeFock (CHF) approach with angular momentum constraints <ĵ^{2}> and <ĵ_{Z}> has been used to calculate the lowlying 8^{+}, T = 0 energy levels in ^{24}Mg. The excitation spectrum obtained using the solutions of the CHF equations whose angular momentum distributions are strongly localised about J = 8 approximate the results of an exact diagonalisation quite well. The necessity of projection after variation is circumvented in this procedure.
