Pairing correlations. II. Microscopic analysis of odd-even mass staggering in nuclei

Abstract

The odd-even mass staggering in nuclei is analyzed in the context of self-consistent mean-field calculations, for spherical as well as for deformed nuclei. For these nuclei, the respective merits of the energy differences $\Delta^{(3)}$ and $\Delta^{(5)}$ to extract both the pairing gap and the time-reversal symmetry breaking effect at the same time are extensively discussed. The usual mass formula $\Delta^{(3)}$ is shown to contain additional mean-field contributions when realistic pairing is used in the calculation. A simple tool is proposed in order to remove the time-reversal symmetry breaking effects from $\Delta^{(5)}$. Extended comparisons with the odd-even mass staggering obtained in the zero-pairing limit ͑schematic model and self-consistent calculations͒ show the nonperturbative contribution of pairing correlations on this observable.
