Extending the nuclear cranking model to tilted axis rotation and alternative mean field potentials

Research output: ThesisDoctoral Thesis (compilation)


The nuclear model for three dimensional cranking is extended to include a generalization of the Strutinski renormalization procedure from principal axis cranking to cranking about an tilted axis. A new computer code has been written for realistic, full-scale calculations within the three dimensional cranking model. The code is developed for calculations to produce output of high precision to allow resolution of the often weak energy variations with the tilting angles of the direction of the cranking vector. The code also allows eigenvalues and angular momentum expectation values from another mean-field potential, to be input for the calculation of total quantities such as total energy and spin. The papers contain results from the first applications of the program.
