Analytic continuation of single-particle resonance energy and wave function in relativistic mean field theory
Single-particle resonant states in spherical nuclei are studied by an analytic continuation in the coupling constant (ACCC) method within the framework of the self-consistent relativistic mean field (RMF) theory. Taking the neutron resonant state vlg9/2 in 60Ca as an example, we examine the analyticity of the eigenvalue and eigenfunction for the Dirac equation with respect to the coupling constant by means of a Padé approximant of the second kind. The RMF-ACCC approach is then applied to 122Zr and, for the first time, this approach is employed to investigate both the energies, widths, and wave functions for l ≠ 0 resonant states close to the continuum threshold. Predictions are also compared with corresponding results obtained from the scattering phase shift method.
