Particle-Number Projection and the Density Functional TheoryAug 03 2007In the framework of the Density Functional Theory for superconductors, we study the restoration of the particle number symmetry by means of the projection technique. Conceptual problems are outlined and numerical difficulties are discussed. Both are related ... More

Isospin-symmetry restoration within the nuclear density functional theory: formalism and applicationsDec 22 2009Isospin symmetry of atomic nuclei is explicitly broken by the charge-dependent interactions, primarily the Coulomb force. Within the nuclear density functional theory, isospin is also broken spontaneously. We propose a projection scheme rooted in a mean ... More
