Abstract

The spinodal instabilities for symmetric nuclear matter at finite temperature are studied within different relativistic mean-field models in the semi-classical approximation and the relativistic results are compared with Skyrme type non-relativistic calculations. Qualitatively similar results appear in the unstable response of the system in both non-relativistic and relativistic descriptions. Furthermore, the early growth of baryon, scalar and current density correlation functions are calculated for hot symmetric nuclear matter. (C) 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
