The domains of validity of the various approximations to full three-dimensional TDHF calculations are fairly well understood at this point. Further work needs to be done to determine the appropriate effective interaction to employ, and it is important to investigate the effects of relaxing the spin symmetry. Nevertheless significant progress has been made in effecting realistic calculations, and comparison with experiment, especially for fusion in light systems, where most of the data exists, is extremely encouraging. Finally, it is important that better calculations, as well as experiments at higher energy be effected in order to settle the question as to the existence or non-existence of an angular momentum window for fusion.

    In the filling approximation, a spherical nucleus is constructed by assigning equal, time-independent fractional occupation probabilities, ni to the orbitals of the last shell. Although the density p = Σj njΨjΨj then no longer satisfies the HF condition p2 = p, this technique has been adopted in order to obtain spherically symmetric solutions for open-shell nuclei.Google Scholar
