The nuclear symmetry energy

Journal of Physics: Conference series


The role of isospin asymmetry in nuclei and neutron stars is discussed, with an emphasis on the density dependence of the nuclear symmetry energy. Results obtained with the self-consistent Green function method are presented and compared with various other theoretical predictions. Implications for the equation of state of a neutron star are discussed, and also possible constraints obtained from finite nuclei. | Source: International Symposium on Correlation Dynamics in Nuclei Book Series: JOURNAL OF PHYSICS CONFERENCE SERIES
