The One‐Body and Two‐Body Density Matrices of Finite Nuclei and Center‐of‐Mass Correlations
- Conference date: 12-17 September 2005
- Location: Isle of Kos (Greece)
A method is presented for the calculation of the one‐body (1DM) and two‐body (2DM) density matrices and their Fourier transforms in momentum space, that is consistent with the requirement for translational invariance (TI), in the case of a nucleus (a finite self‐bound system). We restore TI by using the so‐called fixed center‐of‐mass (CM) approximation for constructing an intrinsic nuclear ground state wavefunction (WF) by starting from a non‐translationally invariant (nTI) WF and applying a projection prescription. We discuss results for the one‐body (OBMD) and two‐body (TBMD) momentum distributions of the 4He nucleus calculated with the Slater determinant of the harmonic oscillator (HO) orbitals, as the initial nTI WF. Effects of such an inclusion of CM correlations are found to be quite important in the momentum distributions.
