  2. three-body one-body “Simple” Trial state: two-body Trends in dynamical mean-field theories (TDHF) Mean-field: (DFT/EDF) Courtesy to C. Simenel Self-consistent Mean-field First applications : more than 30 years ago Renewal of interest: Kim, Otsuka, Bonche, J. Phys.G23, (1997). Nakatsukasa and K. Yabana, PRC71, (2005). Maruhn, Reinhard, Stevenson, Stone, Strayer, PRC71 (2005). Umar and Oberacker, PRC71, (2005). Simenel, Avez, Int. J. Mod. Phys. E 17, (2008). Now full 3D calculations With the complete Energy Density Functional In the near future, the predicting power of TD-EDF has to be benchmarked
