Coll: T. Duguet, M. Bender K. Bennaceur, T. Lesinski Dynamics : -Fission. fusion. -vibrations -… Static: -ground state -excited states -Deformation -Phase diagram -… from Bruyère le Châtel (CEA-DAM) website

5
Cures and Pathologies of MR-EDF – Saclay November 2007 Denis Lacroix Phenomenology of divergences in the PNP case The problem disappears if the same interaction (with exchange and coulomb treated properly) in the pp and ph channels. First indication of the role of Generalized Wick Theorem (GWT) Dobaczewski et al, arXiv: Analysis in the complex plane for the PNP case Bender and Duguet, Int.J. Mod. Phys. E16 (2007) In the PNP case, by avoiding the use of GWT, one can cure the divergence problem even when different effective interaction are used in different channels. Anguiano et al, NPA 696 (2001) Divergences occur when a level crosses the Fermi energy, with occupation 0.5 and = /2 at this point Tajima et al, NPA542 (1992) Early warnings

Cures and Pathologies of MR-EDF – Saclay November 2007 Denis Lacroix Restoration of angular momentum The problem is generic (angular momentum projection) Zdunczuk et al, nucl-th/ Nodal structure of the overlap Oi and Tajima, PLB606 (2005) Low Resolution High Resolution Two options: We can restrict to purely effective “Hamiltonian” case. We find a general cure to pathologies of actual EDF

Cures and Pathologies of MR-EDF – Saclay November 2007 Denis Lacroix Correction of divergences Lacroix, Duguet, Bender (2007)-Formal aspects This provides a way to identify problems and correct configuration mixing calculations without breaking the actual strategy of EDF. (limited to integer power of densities [Generalization to k-body interactions]) Valid also in the Slater Determinant case. Should correct divergences observed in Zdunczuk et al, nucl-th/ Before Bloch-Messiah-Zumino { { After Bloch-Messiah-Zumino Instructive to understand the BMZ Theorem Indicates that major changes in numerical implementations might be needed Illustration with the Particle Number Restoration confirm the intuition Bender and Duguet, Int.J. Mod. Phys. E16 (2007) see M. Bender Talk and M.Bender et al (in preparation)

13
Cures and Pathologies of MR-EDF – Saclay November 2007 Denis Lacroix Summary on correction of problem in EDF: General EDF framework Keep the full Power of EDF -Phenomenological terms -Different pp and ph interactions -Exchange -Self-interaction in SR and MR -Divergences in conf. mixing -Corrections are possible with different pp and ph interactions -Limit the type of terms Lacroix, Duguet, Bender (2007) Effective Hamiltonian Anguiano et al, NPA 696 (2001) -Same pp and ph interaction. -Exchange and coulomb fully treated Closer to an Hamiltonian approach -No Divergences -But EDF is ill defined: (shift invariance) Requires a constructive framework for EDF: 1-to construct Single-Ref EDF 2-To extend to conf. mixing 3-May require major changes in codes

14
Cures and Pathologies of MR-EDF – Saclay November 2007 Denis Lacroix Summary and Discussion Energy Density Functional for conf. mixing Specific aspects and difficulties (jumps, divergences…) We have partially solved the problem (application to particle Number Restoration) We need a constructive framework for MR-EDF EDF: Density Functional Theory or not? If yes, we can eventually take advantage of DFT techniques. Should we keep the Hamiltonian based theory? Requires the proof of some theorem?

(III) We cannot use fractional powers of densities (no shift invariance)

Cures and Pathologies of MR-EDF – Saclay November 2007 Denis Lacroix Correction of divergences The Particle Number Restoration Case term term Results Correction is important at and near divergences Corrected energy curves are now smooth Correction is overall small (~500keV) but of the order of the required accuracy. For the presented case, second 0 + at 6.03 MeV ?

18
Cures and Pathologies of MR-EDF – Saclay November 2007 Denis Lacroix More results of the correction The correction is systematically needed even when no divergences are seen. It is overall small BUT of the order of the UNEDF goal In all cases, correction reduces the noise Systematic study with other type of conf. mixing?
