Abstract

We demonstrate the feasibility of realistic shell-model Monte Carlo (SMMC) calculations spanning multiple major shells, using a realistic interaction whose bad saturation and shell properties have been corrected by a newly developed general prescription. Particular attention is paid to the approximate restoration of translational invariance. The model space consists of the full sd-pf shells. We include in the study some well-known T = 0 nuclei and several unstable neutron-rich ones around N=20,28. The results indicate that SMMC calculations can reproduce binding energies, B(E2) transitions, and other observables with an interaction that is practically parameter free. Some interesting insight is gained into the nature of deep correlations. The validity of previous studies is confirmed.
