Condensates and correlations in nuclear matter
University of Rostock, Germany
Nuclei in dense matter are inﬂuenced by the medium. Solving an A-particle Schroedinger equation including the eﬀects of self-energy and Pauli blocking, a quasiparticle description is introduced. Deriving thermodynamic properties, this approach contains the NSE at low densities as well as mean-ﬁeld approaches at high densities. Consequences for the symmetry energy, the phase transition, the determination of thermodynamic parameters from cluster yields and astrophysical applications are discussed.
