Lukas Emmert: On the liquid drop model

Time: Wed 2019-03-06 17.00 - 18.00

Location: Seminar Hall Kuskvillan, Institut Mittag-Leffler

Lecturer: Lukas Emmert, LMU Munich

We consider the liquid drop model for nuclei interacting with a neutralizing homogeneous background of electrons. The regime we are interested in is when the fraction between the electronic and the nuclear charge density is small. We show that in this dilute limit the thermodynamic ground state energy is given to leading order by that of an isolated nucleus.
