GOGNY FORCE CARACTERISTICS
 
 
     
 
  The Gogny effective interaction reads  
 
     
   
     
 
  In this expression, the first line represents the central finite range part (μj) of the force, the second line represents the density dependent term and the third line the spin-orbit term having a zero range. Finally, the last line describes the Coulomb interaction between protons (τiz=1/2 for protons and τiz=-1/2 for neutrons).  
 
     
 
  Because of the finite range of the Gogny force, the parameters of the interaction can be adjusted to reproduce not only global properties of nuclei coming out of the mean field theory, but also the intensity of the pairing correlations existing between the nucleons.
