Uncertainty analysis and symmetry restoration in nuclear selfconsistent methods
This thesis contains two articles, in the following denoted by I and II, and an introduction to
them. In Chapter 1, I present the theoretical models of nuclear structure. In Chapter 2, I introduce
the basic ideas about the density functional theory (DFT) and selfconsistent meanfield
(SCMF) calculations. In Chapter 3, I give the formulae for the uncertainty propagation, which
is the error analysis method used in article I. As a proper tool to survey the predictive power
of theoretical models, the error analysis now has become more and more widely used. By analyzing
the propagation of uncertainties, one tries to find out the e ectiveness of the calculation
with a given parameter set obtained from optimization. In Chapter 4, I present the theoretical
framework of the Lipkin method used in article II. This method can be considered as an approximation
of the variationafterprojection method. In Chapter 6, I brie
y review the main
results of articles I and II. In the Appendices, I give some useful details and derivations.

Model nuclear energy density functionals derived from ab initio calculations
Salvioni, G.; Dobaczewski, J.; Barbieri, C.; Carlsson, G.; Idini, A.; Pastore, A. (Institute of Physics, 2020)We present the first application of a new approach, proposed in (2016J.Phys.G:Nucl.Part.Phys.4304LT01) to derive coupling constants of the Skyrme energy density functional (EDF) fromab initioHamiltonian. By perturbing theab ... 
Towards a novel energy density functional for beyondmeanfield calculations with pairing and deformation
Haverinen, Tiia; Kortelainen, Markus; Dobaczewski, J.; Bennaceur, K. (Jagellonian University, 2019)We take an additional step towards the optimization of the novel finiterange pseudopotential at a constrained Hartree–Fock–Bogolyubov level and implement an optimization procedure within an axial code using harmonic ... 
A SelfConsistent Charge DensityFunctional TightBinding Parameterization for PtRu Alloys
Shi, Hongbo; Koskinen, Pekka; Ramasubramaniam, Ashwin (American Chemical Society, 2017)We present a selfconsistent charge densityfunctional tightbinding (SCCDFTB) parametrization for PtRu alloys, which is developed by employing a training set of alloy cluster energies and forces obtained from Kohn–Sham ... 
Higherorder energy density functionals in nuclear selfconsistent theory
Raimondi, Francesco (University of Jyväskylä, 2011)In this thesis consisting of two publications and an overview part, a study of two aspects of energy density functionals has been performed. Firstly, we have linked the nexttonexttonexttoleading order nuclear ... 
Approximate energy functionals for onebody reduced density matrix functional theory from manybody perturbation theory
Giesbertz, Klaas J. H.; Uimonen, AnnaMaija; van Leeuwen, Robert (Springer, 2018)We develop a systematic approach to construct energy functionals of the oneparticle reduced density matrix (1RDM) for equilibrium systems at finite temperature. The starting point of our formulation is the grand potential ...
