Pairing-plus-quadrupole model and nuclear deformation: The role of the spin-orbit interaction
The pairing-plus-quadrupole model, realized in the framework of the Elliott SU(3) scheme, is used to study the combined effects of the quadrupole-quadrupole, pairing, and spin-orbit interactions on ground state shapes of nuclear systems. Representation mixing induced by the symmetry-breaking pairing and spin-orbit forces is shown to soften the deformation. The angular momentum dependence of the results is discussed.
