The Calculation of SingleNucleon Energies of Nuclei by Considering TwoBody Effective Interaction, , and a HartreeFock Inspired Scheme
Abstract
The nucleon singleparticle energies (SPEs) of the selected nuclei, that is, , , and , are obtained by using the diagonal matrix elements of twobody effective interaction, which generated through the lowestorder constrained variational (LOCV) calculations for the symmetric nuclear matter with the phenomenological nucleonnucleon potential. The SPEs at the major levels of nuclei are calculated by employing a HartreeFock inspired scheme in the spherical harmonic oscillator basis. In the scheme, the correlation influences are taken into account by imposing the nucleon effective mass factor on the radial wave functions of the major levels. Replacing the densitydependent onebody momentum distribution functions of nucleons, , with the Heaviside functions, the role of in the nucleon SPEs at the major levels of the selected closed shell nuclei is investigated. The best fit of spinorbit splitting is taken into account when correcting the major levels of the nuclei by using the parameterized WoodSaxon potential and the densitydependent mean field potential which is constructed by the LOCV method. Considering the pointlike protons in the spherical Coulomb potential well, the singleproton energies are corrected. The results show the importance of including , instead of the Heaviside functions, in the calculation of nucleon SPEs at the different levels, particularly the valence levels, of the closed shell nuclei.
1. Introduction
The study of shell structure and relevant properties, for example, singleparticle energies (SPEs), of closed shell nuclei plays a crucial role in the description of various astrophysical scenarios. For many years, the impact of nuclear shell structure on the astrophysical nucleosynthesis processes has been recognized by observing the socalled equilibrium, s, and rprocess peaks in the galactic abundance distribution curves [1]. SPEs have frequently been used in a few mass models where the total groundstate energies of finite nuclei are calculated as the sum of a microscopic term, determined by the calculated SPEs, and a macroscopic term, based on the finite range droplet model [2, 3]. Nowadays, the benchmark role of closed shell nuclei properties on a reliable description of astrophysical events becomes more obvious by daily progress in getting the observational data, for example, from the rprocess sources such as binary compact stars (white dwarf and neutron star mergers) and explosive supernovae (Ia and II), or from the weak interaction processes in the stellar burning, whether via neutron/electron capture or via neutrino absorption on nucleons/nuclei (see, e.g., [4, 5] and the relevant references therein). Hence, investigating shell structure properties of closed shell nuclei such as SPEs is necessary for the stateoftheart of the nuclear astrophysics calculations.
Recently, many works have been presented to describe the shell structure properties of exotic nuclei based on the closed shell nuclei properties. We can point, for instance, to the performing systematic microscopic calculations of mediummass nuclei [6, 7], the calculations based on microscopic valencespace interactions [8ā16], and the calculations by using SelfConsistent Greenās Function [17, 18] or InMedium Similarity Renormalization Group [19, 20]. An important step to study nuclei far from stability is the use of nuclear interactions predicted by chiral effective field theory, which provides consistent two and threenucleon forces without any fit to the particular region in the nuclear chart [21, 22]. It is worth mentioning that shell evolutions of various neutronrich isotopes have been studied by many authors recently, for example, for Si isotopes [23], for Sn isotopes with [24], for Ca isotopes [7], and for singleparticlelike levels in Sb and Cu isotopes [25]. Lately, the authors of [26] studied the nuclear states with singleparticle and collective characters in the framework of beyond mean field approaches and in the study of semimagic . The structure obtained is compatible with results from the stateoftheart of shellmodel calculations and experimental data [27ā29]. More recently, by applying the newly developed theory of effective nucleonnucleon interactions on the study of exotic nuclei, the authors of [30] performed shellmodel calculations with several major shells for the exotic neutronrich Ne, Mg, and Si isotopes and predicted the drip lines and showed the effective singleparticle energies by exhibiting the shell evolution. Thus, accounting for the shell structure of exotic nuclei, the nuclei far from stability, is essential to both nuclear physics and astrophysics.
Although most of the attempts, mentioned above, lead to results which are compatible with the relevant experimental data, they are not the end of the story in the study of the shell structure of nuclei because of the highly complicated nature of the strong nuclear force. During the past decade, many authors investigated [15, 31, 33ā45] how the presence of strong shortrange repulsive force in finite nuclei leads to the presence of a highmomentum component in the groundstate wave function, as predicted by scattering experiments. Recently, the highmomentum transfer measurements have shown that nucleons in nuclear ground states can form shortrange correlated pairs with large relative momentum [45ā50]. Furthermore, highenergy electron scattering shows that internucleon shortrange repulsive force forms correlated highmomentum neutronproton pairs and thus, in exotic nuclei, protons are more probable to have a momentum greater than the Fermi momentum in comparison to neutrons [51]. Nevertheless, the effect of the highmomentum component of nuclear force on the properties of nucleons such as nucleon momentum distribution, , and SPE is not wellaccommodated in the shellmodel theory since this model does not consider the nucleonnucleon interaction at small distances with precision. For many years, some authors have theoretically predicted the experimental features of , such as the longtail component in the highmomentum region and the gap at the Fermi surface compared to the fully occupied case of the noninteracting Fermi gas model [52, 53]. However, there are still differences, particularly in the highmomentum region, between experimental data and those on the basis of theoretical models whether they are microscopic or phenomenological. It is worth mentioning that in the framework of the lowestorder constrained variational (LOCV) method [54] and based on the RistigClark formalism [55] the authors of [56] constructed onebody density and momentumdependent distribution functions . Their calculated have been in overall agreement with those of other methods. By applying on the calculation of singlenucleon properties, the authors obtained comparable results with other methods [57]. The modeldependent nature of , particularly in the highmomentum part, leads to disagreements between different methods in the calculation of singlenucleon properties. Hence, the investigation of the influence of highmomentum component on the shell structure properties of nuclei, for example, SPEs, is an open problem in nuclear physics.
In this work, we use the LOCV method to generate and twobody effective interaction matrix elements. LOCV is a fully selfconsistent technique without any free parameter and with statedependent correlation functions. The method uses the cluster expansion formalism with an adequate convergence up to twobody interactions. The insignificant effect of higherorder terms, for example, threebody, on the nuclear matter groundstate energy, and the convergence of the cluster expansion in the LOCV formalism have been discussed by the authors of [58] and the formalism has been validated. The method has been employed for asymmetric/symmetric nuclear matter (A/SNM) and neutron matter calculations at zero and nonzero temperatures, for different types of neutron stars [59ā67], and for finite nuclei calculations from which results have been compatible with experimental data [68ā75]. Lately, in order to reduce the effect of the highmomentum component of strong nuclear force on finite nuclei properties, a Fermi momentum cutoff has been imposed on both average effective interactions and density and channeldependent ones [76, 77]. More recently, we investigated the effect of the gap of at the Fermi surface on the binding energy of the selected mediummass nuclei [78]. The results of our last work motivate us to investigate the effect of on the calculation of the nucleon SPEs of the closed shell nuclei.
There is a problem in the definition and the calculation of singleparticle levels (SPLs) for atomic nuclei comprising strongly interacting nucleons. Many years ago, in order to describe experimental measurements, some authors (see, e.g., [79]) attempted to calculate the SPLs of nuclei by presenting a reasonable definition of SPLs. Furthermore, the presence of correlations between interacting nucleons has not been taken into account in the HartreeFock (HF) mean field levels [80]. In order to calculate the nucleon SPEs of nuclei, we present a formalized scheme, called here the HF inspired scheme, in which the twobody correlations are considered. We include in the calculation of densitydependent SPEs and impose a factor of nucleon effective mass, at the Fermi surface, on the radial parts of density functions when extracting SPLs. Thus, we control highmomentum components of twonucleon interactions by , rather than using the usual Heaviside functions, and account for the presence of correlations in HF mean field by . Both and are generated by the LOCV calculations for SNM with phenomenological nucleonnucleon potential [75]. In order to do this, we organize the paper as follows. In Section 2, we formalize a variational calculation of nucleon SPEs at the major levels of nuclei in the spherical harmonic oscillator (SHO) basis. During the calculation, we investigate the role of on the calculations at the minimum point of the total energy of a nucleus, denoted by ( is the SHO parameter). In Section 3, we correct the major levels of nuclei by applying the phenomenological parameterized WoodSaxon (WS) potential and the mean field potential on the calculation of spinorbit interaction at . In Section 4, by including the Coulomb interactions, we improve the singleproton energies. In Section 5, we shall show the effect of on the calculation of SPEs in the groundstate of selected closed shell nuclei, that is, , , and . Finally, in Section 6, we discuss the results.
2. Calculation of Nucleon SPEs at Major Levels
Although one can obtain the nucleon SPEs of a nucleus by solving the HF selfconsistent equations, we calculate them by using a variational method and introducing the HF inspired scheme. In our point of view, applying a variational method for the present calculations is a more straightforward approach to show the effect of on SPEs. On the other hand, we believe that including a factor of with as the nucleon mass within the radial parts of SHO functions covers the correlation effects on the mean field calculations. Now, the general form of the Hamiltonian of a nucleus comprising A nucleons is given bywhere , the singleparticle kinetic energy (SPKE) operator for ith nucleon, is given by and denotes the twonucleon interaction potential. By denoting the occupied singleparticle states by , the total energy of occupied states (the core energy), , in diagonal configuration, is given bywhere āā shows that the summation topped to occupied states. Now, we define the nucleon singleparticle interaction energy (SPIE) as the energy which a specific nucleon obtains via the mean field interaction of all other nucleons in the core. By denoting configuration as the state of specific nucleon and SPIE as and rewriting interaction part of the Hamiltonian, the total energy of core gets the following form:Now, we can present an expression to calculate the SPE of a nucleon in the core as follows:The total energy of a closed shell nucleus with configuration plus one nucleon (one absentnucleon, socalled, one hole) in the state above (below) the Fermi surface is as follows:By defining , we can rewrite the total energy as follows:The 1p1h SPE (near the Fermi surface) readsIn this work, we set the SHO basis; that is, in which with , , and as the principle, the orbital angular momentum, and the projection of orbital angular momentum quantum numbers of the nucleon in the core, respectively. The SHO parameter, which plays the role of variation parameter, is given by in which is the oscillator energy to measure the size of the specific nucleus.
In order to calculate SPEs, our strategy is as follows: first, we obtain the density and momentumdependent diagonal matrix elements of the nucleonnucleon effective interactions, , by using the LOCV calculations for SNM with potential. Then we employ the elements in order to construct SPIE. Next, while we keep the quantum numbers of one orbit, , we do summations over the relevant quantum numbers of other orbits in all over occupied states. In order to obtain the expectation values of SPKE and SPIE in configuration space, we use the correlated wave functions by imposing the nucleon effective mass on the radial SHO functions. Finally, we find the minimum value of the total energy of the nucleus, (3), via variation of and thus the groundstate energy of the nucleus is obtained as we did in our previous works [69ā78]. We assign the corresponding at the minimum point of total energy of the nucleus by and calculate the nucleon SPEs of the nucleus at . During the calculation of SPEs, we shall investigate how the onebody densitydependent momentum distribution functions are important in the evaluation of SPEs by replacing with Heaviside functions.
According to (3) and above explanations, the groundstate energy of the core readswhere 0020and stand for SPKE and SPIE, respectively. Thus, the SPE of nucleon in a specific singleparticle state of a closed shell nucleus at is given byand the 1p1h SPE is as follows:where In the SHO basis, one can obtain SPIE from (4) and (7) as follows:where means that we need a factor of only in the calculation of SPIE for (cf. (2)). Regarding the LOCV method, the twobody effective interaction has the following form [54]:where , the density and channeldependent twobody correlation functions, are operator typelike [73]. The operator for the potential has the following form [81]:where the forms of eighteen components of the twobody operator are as follows:In (14), all components are central functions of distance between two interacting nucleons without any dependency on quantum numbers.
Now, the matrix elements of twobody interactions are obtained by sandwiching (a) between and , two complete basis sets of plane waves together with spin and isospin parts, and (b) between and , two orthogonal bases in the configuration space, and (c) between and , two complete sets in which denotes , , , , and where , , , and are the relative orbital momentum, the total spin, isospin, and isospin projection of two interacting nucleons, respectively, and comes from . Thus, a straightforward calculation, by taking just diagonal matrix elements and considering orthogonality conditions, (12) is simplified bywhereIn (17), are the isospin ClebschGordan coefficients and are the wellknown spherical Bessel functions in which the relative momentum and distance of two interacting nucleons are obtained by the familiar relations and , respectively. In the above equations, we converted the summations over and to integrals by the wellknown relation as follows:where are the onebody momentum distribution functions. In this work, , generated by using the LOCV calculations for SNM with potential based on the RistigClark formalism [55], are densitydependent [78]. We suppose that the volume of box, , is obtained by where callsIn (16) and (17), we can replace by , since SPKE and SPIE depend only on the magnitude of the relevant singleparticle momentum and also the interest of this work is to consider the closed shell nuclei. It should be noted that ās are topped to the Fermi momentum, , with being degeneracy parameter of nucleons. Now, by use of (9), (10), (16), and (17), and recalling , we find SPE as follows:where we replaced with . In the above equation, readswhere is a normalization coefficient for each natural orbit and , the effective mass of nucleon, is calculated at the Fermi surface by the LOCV method with considering potential [78]. In this work, we calculate at a fixed energy, socalled kmass definition, which is a measure of the nonlocality of singleparticle potential, due to nonlocality in space. This definition is clearly different from the Emass definition which shows the nonlocality of singleparticle potential, due to nonlocality in time. By imposing this factor we mean the shape of density distribution function is altered by correlations in the HF inspired scheme. After varying and finding the minimum total energy of nucleus, we obtain the SPE of a specific singleparticle state at . Table 1 shows for the singlenucleon major levels of , , and . In order to clarify the importance of including in calculations, the values of are considered in two different cases: (i) including the constructed and (ii) including the Heaviside function. In Table 1, the magnitudes of SPEs at the major levels, especially near the valence levels, indicate the importance of including , as discussed in Section 6.

3. SpinOrbit Interaction
In order to complete the calculations of SPLs and the evaluation of the effect on them, we include the spinorbit effect in our calculations. There are many calculations of spinorbit corrections, from the old calculations to new relativistic ones [82ā87]. Considering spinorbit interaction, the spin orientation degeneracy is removed in the major SPLs and they will be split. Indeed, the SHO base kets, , are not appropriate in the presence of spinorbit interaction. Including total angular momentum quantum number, , the appropriate base kets are , where and is the spin projection. Thus, SPEs at , corresponding to the minimum point of total energy of the nucleus, are given bywhereSandwiching the spinorbit operator, , between two complete orthogonal sets of position base kets, imposing effective mass factor on the radial SHO functions, and performing straightforward mathematics, the spinorbit correction is written asIn (13), the forms of constant factor and the WS type function are as follows [82]:where is a fit parameter, presents the total strength, is the reduced mass of the single particle and residual nucleus mass, is given by , and is the skin depth which shows diffuseness of the surface. In order to achieve the best agreement with the experimental spinorbit splitting of nuclei the parameters take the following values at :
As another approach, we use our densitydependent singleparticle potential, , as . In this way, we fit the spinorbit correction with the experimental data only by one parameter, that is, , through . In order to obtain the best agreement with the experimental spinorbit splitting of nuclei, the parameter takes the value at . Table 2 shows the results of spinorbit interaction corrections on the major SPLs of , , and , calculated at , according to the bestfit values for the parameters of WS and potentials. We put the values of spinorbit splitting corresponding to the mean field potential, (16), inside the parentheses. In order to characterize the accuracy of the bestadjustment data in the description of the calculated spinorbit splitting, , the average theoretical error of predictions is given bywhere is the empirical spinorbit splitting of each nucleus. Regarding the lack of empirical spinorbit splitting data for some nuclei, as seen in Table 2, the value of is 14 in the above relation.

4. Coulomb Interaction
To impose the electromagnetic effects on the singleproton levels, one may suppose that each proton lies in the repulsive Coulomb potential well, made by the other protons. In fact, the potential is determined by a certain nuclear charge distribution, , as follows:where āC. In this work, the protons are assumed to be pointlike particles and to have the uniform spherical charge distribution with the total value . Then the Coulomb potential is given byIn the above equation, , the spherical charge distribution radius is calculated by .
Comparing to nuclear interactions, there is no significant difference if one supposes that the protons are pointlike or they have certain radii. In the latter case, it is sufficient to use in which āfm [88]. Table 3 shows the results of imposing Coulomb interaction corrections on the singleproton levels, , of the selected nuclei at the corresponding by including and the Heaviside functions, characterized with (i) and (ii), respectively.

5. The Effect of on SPEs
Including the spinorbit corrections which have been calculated by potential, , and Coulomb corrections, , the nucleon SPEs, , readTable 4 shows the calculated SPLs of , , and at the corresponding , obtained by the HF inspired scheme and the LOCV calculations for SNM with by including and the Heaviside functions, identified by (i) and (ii), respectively, besides the experimental data. The letters p, n and the abbreviated word āexpā specify the singleproton, singleneutron, and the experimental levels of each nucleus, respectively. As shown in Table 4, including leads to a reduction in the magnitude values of all SPEs with respect to the considering the Heaviside functions. This reduction is more significant for the valence levels. We discuss in Section 6 the results.

6. Discussion and Conclusion
The momentum and energy distributions of nucleons are affected by the strong shortrange correlations of nucleons in finite nuclei. This fact becomes more important when we calculate the nuclei properties, for example, nucleon SPEs, which play a main role in the description of some astrophysical processes (cf. Section 1). Thus, it would be useful if we measure how much can influence the prediction of nucleon SPEs of closed shell nuclei. In this work, we have investigated the issue for the selected closed shell nuclei, that is, , , and , by replacing , generated by the LOCV calculations for SNM with , with Heaviside functions. By constructing a density and momentumdependent mean field potential in the framework of LOCV method and by employing the HF inspired scheme in which the nucleon effective mass has been imposed on the natural orbits of nuclei, we have calculated the nucleon SPEs at the major levels of the selected nuclei and measured the effect of on the calculations. Table 1 illustrates the nucleon SPEs at major levels of the selected nuclei by considering and Heaviside functions. We see that there is an absolute increase around 70%, 30%, and 100% in the energy of valence levels of , , and , respectively, when we replace with the Heaviside functions. In order to obtain the correct values of the subshell energies, we have included the spinorbit splitting corrections by using the parameterized WS potential and our densitydependent singleparticle potential, , as the Thomas type mean field potential. The scheme incorporating this effect has been considered at , according to the best fit to the empirical spinorbit splitting data, and the results have been presented in Table 2. In the case of WS bestfit, the calculated average deviation, , from empirical data is surprising with respect to the available data of empirical spinorbit splitting for both neutron and proton levels of all selected nuclei. Although there is an advantage in the use of the mean field potential relative to the WS potential because of the existing only one adjustment parameter (), the spinorbit splitting energies are not compatible with the experimental data for levels of the selected nuclei. In order to correct singleproton levels, we assumed that single pointlike proton lies in a uniformly charged spherical potential well with a radius determined by the corresponding RMS radius, . As shown in Table 3, whereas these corrections do not lead to a significant change in the energy levels of the nuclei, there is a maximum about 20% and 30% decrease for the energy levels (all selected nuclei) and (), respectively, by replacing the Heaviside functions with . Table 4 compares the results of two cases of the SPEs calculations by considering two momentum distribution functions: (i) and (ii) Heaviside at the corresponding . Regarding the magnitude of SPEs, considering leads to a significant reduction with respect to the Heaviside case for the valence levels of the selected closed shell nuclei. The values of SPEs depend on the calculation scheme, which encompasses the way the interactions are regularized, and details of the manybody method. However, the results of the employed scheme in the present work show how the selection of momentum distribution function is important in the SPE calculations. As a result of the above discussions, by taking into account the depletion at the Fermi surface and the tail of the onebody density dependent momentum distribution in the calculations, through using , we find a large difference in the nucleon SPEs at the valence levels and other levels of the selected closed shell nuclei.
In conclusion, has been employed to calculate the SPEs of closed shell nuclei, that is, , , and , by using the matrix elements of nucleonnucleon effective interaction and from the LOCV calculations for SNM with and also employing an HF inspired scheme to consider the correlation effects through imposing the nucleon effective mass on the density distribution functions of nucleons. The surprising results show that the use of has a significant effect on the calculation of SPEs. The results of the present formalism might be improved by including all interaction matrix elements and constructing the diagonalized interaction matrix, by including threebody force effects, as well as the densitydependent Coulomb interactions. Although the calculations have been limited by the LOCV method (to generate the twobody effective interaction matrix elements), the RistigClark formalism (to construct functions), and the HF inspired scheme (to include correlation effects), the results show how much the inclusion of can be important in the prediction of closed shell properties such as singlenucleon energies.
