5 Table of Isotopes Evolution of the Table of Isotopes A large portion of this table is less than ten years old ! Large gaps on the heavy neutron rich side ! Evolution of the Table of Isotopes

6 Need for improved isovector channel of the effective nuclear interaction. EOS of asymmetric nuclear matter and neutron matter Structure and stability of exotic nuclei with extreme proton/neutron asymmetries Formation of neutron skin and halo structures Isoscalar and isovector deformations Mapping the drip-lines Evolution of shell structure Structure of superheavy elements

7 Slater determinantdensity matrix Mean field:Eigenfunctions:Interaction: DFT very successful because being effective theories, adjusted to experiment, include globally a large number of important effects, which go beyond simple Hartree theory, such as: Brueckner correlations, ground state correlations, vacuum polarizations, exchange terms etc.

8 Why relativistic? * Simplicity and elegance Non-relativistic kinematics !!! * Large spin-orbit term in nuclear physics (magic numbers) * Success of relativistic Brueckner calculations (Coester line) * Weak isospin dependence of spin-orbit (isotopic shifts) * Pseudospin symmetry (nuclear spectra) * Relativistic saturation mechanism * Nuclear magnetism (magnetic moments) (moments of inertia)

9 Covariant density functional theory: system of Dirac nucleons coupled by the exchange mesons and the photon field through an effective Lagrangian. (J ,T)=(0 +,0) (J ,T)=(1 -,0) (J ,T)=(1 -,1) Sigma-meson: attractive scalar field: Omega-meson: short-range repulsive Rho-meson: isovector field

10 Covariant density functional theory Dirac operator: No sea approximation:i runs over all states in the Fermi sea

11 EFFECTIVE INTERACTIONS (NL1, NL2, NL3, NL-Z2, …) model parameters: meson masses m , m , m , meson-nucleon coupling constants g , g , g , nonlinear self-interactions coupling constants g 2, g 3,... The parameters are determined from properties of nuclear matter (symmetric and asymmetric) and bulk properties of finite nuclei (binding energies, charge radii, neutron radii, surface thickeness...) Effective density dependence through a non-linear potential: Boguta and Bodmer, NPA. 431, 3408 (1977) NL1,NL3,TM1.. through density dependent coupling constants: T.W.,DD-ME.. Here, the meson-nucleon couplings are replaced by functions depending on the density  r)
