Uncertainty analysis and symmetry restoration in nuclear self-consistent methods
This thesis contains two articles, in the following denoted by I and II, and an introduction to them. In Chapter 1, I present the theoretical models of nuclear structure. In Chapter 2, I introduce the basic ideas about the density functional theory (DFT) and self-consistent mean-field (SCMF) calculations. In Chapter 3, I give the formulae for the uncertainty propagation, which is the error analysis method used in article I. As a proper tool to survey the predictive power of theoretical models, the error analysis now has become more and more widely used. By analyzing the propagation of uncertainties, one tries to find out the e ectiveness of the calculation with a given parameter set obtained from optimization. In Chapter 4, I present the theoretical framework of the Lipkin method used in article II. This method can be considered as an approximation of the variation-after-projection method. In Chapter 6, I brie y review the main results of articles I and II. In the Appendices, I give some useful details and derivations. ...

Salvioni, G.; Dobaczewski, J.; Barbieri, C.; Carlsson, G.; Idini, A.; Pastore, A. (Institute of Physics, 2020)We present the first application of a new approach, proposed in (2016J.Phys.G:Nucl.Part.Phys.4304LT01) to derive coupling constants of the Skyrme energy density functional (EDF) fromab initioHamiltonian. By perturbing theab ...
Towards a novel energy density functional for beyond-mean-field calculations with pairing and deformation Haverinen, Tiia; Kortelainen, Markus; Dobaczewski, J.; Bennaceur, K. (Jagellonian University, 2019)We take an additional step towards the optimization of the novel finite-range pseudopotential at a constrained Hartree–Fock–Bogolyubov level and implement an optimization procedure within an axial code using harmonic ...
Shi, Hongbo; Koskinen, Pekka; Ramasubramaniam, Ashwin (American Chemical Society, 2017)We present a self-consistent charge density-functional tight-binding (SCC-DFTB) parametrization for PtRu alloys, which is developed by employing a training set of alloy cluster energies and forces obtained from Kohn–Sham ...
Raimondi, Francesco (University of Jyväskylä, 2011)In this thesis consisting of two publications and an overview part, a study of two aspects of energy density functionals has been performed. Firstly, we have linked the next-to-next-to-next-to-leading order nuclear ...
Approximate energy functionals for one-body reduced density matrix functional theory from many-body perturbation theory Giesbertz, Klaas J. H.; Uimonen, Anna-Maija; van Leeuwen, Robert (Springer, 2018)We develop a systematic approach to construct energy functionals of the one-particle reduced density matrix (1RDM) for equilibrium systems at finite temperature. The starting point of our formulation is the grand potential ...
