HFB Theory Coordinate-space HFB Approach -11- Deep bound states in BCS become quasiparticle resonances in HFB theory due to continuum coupling. HFB is superior to BCS for describing weakly-bound systems where continuum coupling becomes essential Deep bound states in BCS become quasiparticle resonances in HFB theory due to continuum coupling. HFB is superior to BCS for describing weakly-bound systems where continuum coupling becomes essential HFB G.S.: BCS G.S.: The general HFB equation(or BdG) HFB includes generalized quasi-particle correlations; while BCS is a special quasiparticle transformation only on conjugate states. JP et al. PRC, 2011

12
-12- HFB Quasiparticle spectrum In the complex k plane These resonances are observable in experiments; widths depend very much on the pairing interaction; unique in HFB theory beyond BCS description Continuum effects are crucial for description of drip-line nuclei; and also their excited states with QRPA. N.Michel, et al Identify resonance states that have the complex energy: E -i Γ/2 (widths); and purely scattering states are integrated over the contour. Diagonalization on single-particle basis Direct diagonalization on box lattice (B-spline) Very expensive; dense discretized continuum states Outgoing boundary condition: difficult for deformed cases Coordinate-space HFB Approach

13
Coordinate-space HFB Coordinate-space HFB Approach -13- Advantages: weakly-bound systems and large deformations The HO basis has a Gaussian form exp(-ar 2 ) that decays too fast, while the density distribution decays exponentially exp(-kr). Bound states, continuum and embedded resonances are treated on an equal footing; L 2 discretization leads to a very large configuration space Very accurate for describing weakly-bound nuclei with diffused density distributions; nuclear fission processes Infrastructures 1D HFB code: HFBRAD is available 2D HFB code: HFB-AX based on B-Spline techniques, beyond the capability of single-CPU computers, MPI becomes a must. 3D HFB code: MADNESS-HFB with Multi-wavelets technqiues

Summary Coordinate-space HFB approach works successfully for weakly-bound systems, however, solving the equation in 2D is very expensive and 3D is extremely expensive. Novel numerical techniques are under developing for full 3D DFT calculations. Supercomputing is another direction. Important issues to address: microscopic nuclear fission, cold Fermi systems, neutrons star crusts. A great basis for continued developing method beyond mean- field: deformed continuum QRPA for collective motions. Coordinate-space HFB Approach -29-
