**Abstract:**

Three typical algorithms of Pauli blocking in the quantum molecular dynamics type models are investigated in the nuclear matter, the nucleus and the heavy ion collisions. The calculations in nuclear matter show that the blocking ratios obtained with the three algorithms are underestimated 13-25% compared to the analytical values of blocking ratios. For the finite nucleus, the spurious collisions occur around the surface of the nucleus owing to the defects of Pauli blocking algorithms. In the simulations of heavy ion collisions, the uncertainty of stopping power from different Pauli blocking algorithms is less than 5%. Furthermore, the in-medium effects of nucleon-nucleon (

*NN*) cross sections on the nuclear stopping power are discussed. Our results show that the transport model calculations with free

*NN*cross sections result in the stopping power decreasing with the beam energy at the beam energy less than 300 MeV/u. To increase or decrease the values of stopping power, the transport model calculations need an enhanced or suppressed model dependent in-medium

*NN*cross sections which are expected to be smaller than the true in-medium

*NN*cross sections.

**Abstract:**

For exploring the properties of neutron-rich nuclei with protons near 40, the density-dependent point coupling (DD-PC1) effective interaction parameter is adopted in the relativistic mean-field theory with the complex momentum representation (RMF-CMR). The calculated two-neutron separation energy (S

_{2n}), root-mean-square (rms) radii support the halo structure appear in Mo and Ru isotopic chain. Besides, the neutron skin structures appear for Kr, Sr isotopes. The conclusions are also supported by the single-particle energy levels and their occupancy probability, density distribution. Especially, the energy levels which reduce to bound state or close to 0 MeV with a small orbital angular momentum are suggested to give the main contribution to increase the neutron radius. Moreover, the single-particle energy levels clearly reflect the shell structure. In addition, the neutron drip line nuclei for Kr, Sr, Mo, Ru elements are proposed through the changes of S

_{2n}.

**Abstract:**

A nuclear mass formula based on the macroscopic microscopic approach is proposed, the number of model parameters is reduced compared with other macroscopic microscopic models. The root mean square (RMS) deviation with respect to 2314 training set (measured nuclear masses) is reduced to 0.447 MeV, and the calculated value of each nucleus is no more than 0.8% different from the experimental value. The single and two nucleon separation energy, and the shell gaps are calculated to test the model. The shell corrections and double magic number of superheavy nuclei are also analyzed.

**Abstract:**

Primordial black holes have been considered as an attractive dark matter candidate, whereas some of the predictions heavily rely on the near-horizon physics that remains to be tested experimentally. As a concrete alternative, thermal 2-2-holes closely resemble black holes without event horizons. Being a probable endpoint of gravitational collapse, they not only provide a resolution to the information loss problem, but also naturally give rise to stable remnants. Previously, we have considered primordial 2-2-hole remnants as dark matter. Due to the strong constraints from a novel phenomenon associated with remnant mergers, only small remnants with close to the Planck mass can constitute all of dark matter. In this paper, we examine the scenario that the majority of dark matter consists of particles produced by the evaporation of primordial 2-2-holes, whereas the remnant contribution is secondary. The products with light enough mass may contribute to the number of relativistic degrees of freedom in the early universe, which we also calculate. Moreover, 2-2-hole evaporation can produce particles that are responsible for the baryon asymmetry. We find that baryogenesis through direct B-violating decays or through leptogenesis can both be realized. Overall, the viable parameter space for the Planck remnant case is similar to primordial black holes with Planck remnants. Heavier remnants, on the other hand, lead to different predictions, and the viable parameter space remains large even when the remnant abundance is small.

We explore the effects of the density dependence of symmetry energy on the crust-core phase transition and dynamical instabilities in the cold and warm neutron stars in the RMF theory with point-coupling interactions using the Vlasov approach. The role of neutrino trapping has also been considered. The crust-core transition density and pressure, distillation effect, the cluster size and growth rates have been discussed. The present work shows that the slope of symmetry energy at saturation, temperature, and neutrino trapping have non-negligible effects.

This U-turn phenomenon may be important for the search of CEP in relativistic heavy-ion collisions, in which the validity of BG statistics is questioned due to strong fluctuations and long-range correlations, and the nonextensive effects begin to manifest itself. In addition, we calculated the influence of the nonextensive effects on the critical exponents and found that they remain almost constant with

**Abstract:**

In this paper, we analyze the dependence of the topological charge density from the overlap operator on the Wilson mass parameter in the overlap kernel by the symmetric multi-probing source (SMP) method. We observe that the non-trivial topological objects are removed as the Wilson mass is increased. A comparison of topological charge density calculated by the SMP method using fermionic definition with that of gluonic definition by the Wilson flow method is shown. A matching procedure for these two methods is used. We find that there is a best match for topological charge density between gluonic definition with varied Wilson flow time and fermionic definition with different Wilson mass. By using the matching procedure, the proper flow time of Wilson flow in the calculation of topological charge density can be estimated. As the lattice spacing

*a*decreases, the proper flow time also decreases, as expected.

**Abstract:**

We review the issue of steady spherically symmetric accretion onto a renormalization group improved Schwarzschild space-time which is solution to an asymptotically safe theory (AS) containing high-derivative terms. We use a Hamiltonian dynamical system approach for the analysis of the accretion of four types of isothermal test fluids: ultra-stiff fluid, ultra-relativistic fluid, radiation fluid, and sub-relativistic fluid. An important outcome of our study is that, contrary to what claimed in a recent work, there exist physical solutions for the accretion of an ultra-relativistic fluid in AS which include subsonic, supersonic and transonic regimes. We also study quantum corrections to the known stability of the accretion in general relativity (GR). To this end we use a perturbative procedure based on the continuity equation with the mass accretion rate being the perturbed quantity. Two classes of perturbations are studied: standing waves and travelling waves. We find that quantum gravity effects either enhance or diminish the stability of the accretion depending on the type of test fluid and depending on the radial distance to the central object.

Measuring the vector boson scattering (VBS) precisely is an important step towards understanding the electroweak symmetry breaking of the standard model (SM) and detecting new physics beyond the SM. We propose a neural network which compress the features of the VBS into three dimensional latent space. The consistency of the SM prediction and the experimental data is tested by the binned log-likelihood analysis in the latent space. We will show that the network is capable of distinguish different polarization modes of

Considering a grand canonical ensemble, we study the phase structures and transitions of RN black holes surrounded by quintessence dark energy on two different boundary conditions, namely AdS space and a Dirichlet wall. For AdS space, under the condition of fixed temperature and potential, as the temperature increases for lower potential, the black hole undergoes a first-order phase transition, while for higher potential, no phase transition occurs. There are two different regions in the parameter space. For the Dirichlet wall, on which the temperature and potential are fixed and the state parameter of quintessence
