Relativistic mean-field models with medium-dependent meson-nucleon couplings
- 33 Downloads
Microscopic structure models based on the relativistic mean-field approximation have been extended to include effective Lagrangians with explicit density-dependent meson-nucleon couplings. In a number of recent studies it has been shown that this class of global effective interactions provides an improved description of asymmetric nuclear matter, neutron matter and finite nuclei far from stability.
