ABSTRACT We discuss novel features of a new continuum RPA formulated in the coordinate-space Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov framework. This continuum quasiparticle RPA takes into account both the one- and two-particle escaping channels. The theory is tested with numerical calculations for monopole, dipole and quadrupole excitations in neutron-rich oxygen isotopes near the drip-line. Effects of the particle-particle RPA correlation caused by the pairing interaction are discussed in detail, and importance of the selfconsistent treatment is emphasized.

    ABSTRACT: The relativistic quasiparticle random phase approximation (RQRPA) is formulated in the canonical single-nucleon basis of the relativistic Hartree-Bogoliubov (RHB) model. For the interaction in the particle-hole channel effective Lagrangians with nonlinear meson self-interactions are used, and pairing correlations are described by the pairing part of the finite range Gogny interaction. The RQRPA configuration space includes the Dirac sea of negative energy states. Both in the particle-hole and particle-particle channels, the same interactions are used in the RHB calculation of the ground state and in the matrix equations of the RQRPA. The RHB+RQRPA approach is tested in the example of multipole excitations of neutron rich oxygen isotopes. The RQRPA is applied in the analysis of the evolution of the low-lying isovector dipole strength in Sn isotopes and N=82 isotones.

    ABSTRACT: The relativistic Hartree-Bogoliubov (RHB) model is extended to include density-dependent meson-nucleon vertex functions. Compared with standard relativistic mean-field effective interactions with non-linear meson-exchange terms, the density-dependent meson-nucleon couplings provide an improved description of asymmetric nuclear matter, neutron matter and nuclei far from stability. The relativistic quasiparticle random-phase approximation (RQRPA) is formulated in the canonical single-nucleon basis of the relativistic Hartree-Bogoliubov (RHB) model. Both in the particle-hole and particle-particle channels, the same interactions are used in the RHB calculation of the ground state and in the matrix equations of the RQRPA. The RHB + RQRPA is employed in the analysis of multipole excitations of neutron-rich oxygen isotopes.

    ABSTRACT: The time-dependent density-matrix theory (TDDM) gives a correlated ground state as a stationary solution of the time-dependent equations for one-body and two-body density matrices. The small amplitude limit of TDDM (STDDM) is a version of extended RPA theories which include the effects of ground state correlations. It is shown that the solutions of the Hartree-Fock Bogoliubov theory and the quasi-particle RPA satisfy the TDDM and STDDM equations, respectively, when only pairing-type correlations are taken into account in TDDM and STDDM.
