Impact of Nuclear Deformation on Neutron Dripline Prediction: A Study of Mg Isotopes




Relativistic Hartree-Bogoliubov, Quadrupole deformation, Shape coexistence, Dripline nuclei


We have employed the relativistic Hartree-Bogoliubov (RHB) model with density-dependent meson-exchange interaction and separable pairing to investigate neutron dripline mechanisms for heavy Mg isotopes. In the present study, 40Mg is predicted to be dripline nuclei. The calculations are carried out by taking axial deformation into account. An investigation of shape transition is also done for even-even 32-42Mg isotopes. Our prediction for neutron dripline for 40Mg is consistent with some recent studies.
