Nuclear structure study of some tin isotopes using the self-consistent mean field method


Hartree-Fock calculations for even-even Tin isotopes using Skyrme density dependent effective nucleon-nucleon interaction are discussed systematically. Skyrme interaction and the general formula for the mean energy of a spherical nucleus are described. The charge and matter densities with their corresponding rms radii and the nuclear skin for Sn isotopes are studied and compared with the experimental data. The potential energy curves obtained with inclusion of the pairing force between the like nucleons in Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov approach are also discussed.
