Linear Response Theory

- In the presence of a time-dependent external field, the response of the system reveals the characteristics of the eigenmodes.
- In the limit of a weak perturbing field, the linear response is simply related to the exact two-body Green’s function.
- The RPA provides an approximation scheme to calculate the two-body Green’s function. .

Main results:

- The knowledge of the retarded Green’s function gives access to:
- Excitation energies of eigenmodes (the poles)
- Transition probabilities (residues of the response function)
- Transition densities (or form factors), transition currents, etc… of each excited state .

Analytic summation of single-particle continuum

1) u, w are regular and irregular solutions satisfying appropriate asymptotic conditions

2) This analytic summation is not possible if potential U is non-local .

Dotted: empirical

Dashed: low-lying 2+

Finite temperature

Applications: evolution of escape widths and Landau

damping of IVGDR with temperature .

Restoration of symmetries

- Many symmetries are broken by the HF mean-field approximation: translational invariance, isospin symmetry, particle number in the case of HFB, etc…
- If RPA is performed consistently, each broken symmetry gives an RPA (or QRPA) state at zero energy (the spurious state)
- The spurious state is thus automatically decoupled from the physical RPA excitations
- This is not the case in phenomenological RPA .

Sum rules

- For odd k, RPA sum rules can be calculated from HF, without performing a detailed RPA calculation.
- k=1: Thouless theorem
- k=-1: Constrained HF
- k=3: Scaling of HF .

QRPA (1)

- The scheme which relates RPA to linearized TDHF can be repeated to derive QRPA from linearized Time-Dependent Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov (cf. E. Khan et al., Phys. Rev. C 66, 024309 (2002))
- Fully consistent QRPA calculations, except for 2-body spin-orbit, can be performed (M. Yamagami, NVG, Phys. Rev. C 69, 034301 (2004)) .

QRPA (2)

- If Vpp is zero-range, one needs a cut-off in qp space, or a renormalisation procedure a la Bulgac. Then, one cannot sum up analytically the qp continuum up to infinity
- If Vpp is finite range (like Gogny force) one cannot solve the Bethe-Salpeter equation in coordinate space
- It is possible to sum over an energy grid along the positive axis ( Khan - Sandulescu et al., 2002) .

RRPA and TDRMF

- One can derive RRPA from the linearized version of the time-dependent RMF
- At each time, one assumes the no-sea approximation, i.e., ones keeps only the positive energy states
- These states are expanded on the complete set (at positive and negative energies) of states calculated at time t=0
- This is how the Dirac states appear in RRPA. How important are they?
- From the linearized TDRMF one obtains the matrix form of RRPA, but the p-h configuration space is much larger than in RPA! .

Concluding Remarks

- More studies are needed in the following topics:
- 1.In non-relativistic approach:
- - RPA, QRPA for deformed systems.
- - second RPA.
- 2.In relativistic approach:
- - RPA, QRPA on top of RHF.
- - deformed systems.
- - particle-vibration coupling.

Beyond RPA (1)

- Large amplitude collective motion: Generator Coordinate Method
- RPA can describe escape widths if continuum is treated, and it contains Landau damping, but spreading effects are not in the picture
- Spreading effects are contained in Second RPA
- Some applications called Second RPA are actually Second TDA: consistent SRPA calculations of nuclei are still waited for.

Beyond RPA (2)

- There exist models to approximate SRPA:
- The quasiparticle-phonon model (QPM) of Soloviev et al. Recently, attempts to calculate with Skyrme forces (A. Severyukhin et al.)
- The ph-phonon model: see G. Colo. Importance of correcting for Pauli principle violation
- Not much done so far in relativistic approaches .
