DFT Mass Tables


  • The following are mass table calculations made using the Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov solver HFBTHO.

  • The labels SkM*, SkP, SLy4, SV-min, UNEDF0, and UNEDF1 correspond to the energy density functional used for that table.

  • Files with the even-even_nuclei label contain information on ground state nuclear properties for nuclei with even numbers of protons and neutrons.

  • Files with the all_nuclei label contain estimates of the ground state binding energies, one and two nucleon separation energies, and Q_alpha values for all systems (even-even, odd-A, and odd-odd nuclei).

  • The Excel files All_Even-Even_Nuclei and All_Nuclei contain the data for all six energy density functionals (separated by tabs).

  • To ensure proper formatting, right click the file and save it to your machine.

  • All results shown here were calculated with Lipkin-Nogami.
