A. Gargano JAPEN-ITALY EFES Workshop Torino- 2010 Napoli Ab-initio calculations: Greens function Montecarlo method, no-core shell model, coupled cluster method, UCOM (three-nucleon interactions have been also taken into account ) nuclear properties, such as binding and excitation energies, are calculated directly from first principles of quantum mechanics, using an appropriate computational scheme Challenge for nuclear physics : understand the properties of nuclei starting from the forces among nucleons

A. Gargano JAPEN-ITALY EFES Workshop Torino- 2010 Napoli Realistic shell-model calculations: We start from where U is a one-body auxiliary potential introduced to define a convenient single-paticle basis and define the effective shell-model Hamiltonian through the model-space Schrödinger equation where the E and the corresponding are required to be a subset of the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of the original Hamiltonian The P operator projects into the chosen model space

Gargano JAPEN-ITALY EFES Workshop Torino- 2010 Napoli V low-k approach Derived from the original V NN by integrating out the high-momentum components of the original V NN potential down to the cutoff momentum V low-k decouples high- and low-energy degrees of freedom preserves the physics of the original NN interaction the deuteron binding energy scattering phase-shifts up to the cutoff momentum Λ How to contruct V low-k ? Effective interaction technique based on the the Lee-Suzuki similariry transformation (Prog.

A. Gargano JAPEN-ITALY EFES Workshop Torino- 2010 Napoli Features of V low-k real effective potential in the momentum space (indipendent from the starting energy or from the model space, as instead the case of the G matrix defined in the nuclear medium) eliminates sources of non-perturbative behavior can be used directly in nuclear structure calculations gives an approximately unique representation of the NN potential for 2 fm -1 E Lab 350 MeV - V low-k s extracted from various phase-shift equivalent potentials are very similar to each other Note V low-k is developed for the two-body system èfor A>2 the low-energy observables are not the same of the original NN potential of the original NN potential and depend (to a certain extent) on the value of and depend (to a certain extent) on the value of This may be removed complementing the two-body V low-k with three- and higher-body components
