Relativistic meanfield theory and nuclear deformation
Abstract
Relativistic meanfield theory is used to describe groundstate deformations of nuclei. The relativistic Hartree equations are solved by expansion of the nucleon wave functions and the meson field in a harmonicoscillator basis. Using parameters adjusted in spherical nuclei we find in axially symmetric deformed nuclei good agreement with conventional nonrelativistic calculations based on densitydependent Skyrme forces.
