    Abstract

    The variational method with explicit energy functionals (EEFs) is applied to infinite neutron matter. Starting from the Argonne v8' two-body potential and the repulsive part of the Urbana IX three-body potential, the energy per neutron is expressed explicitly with the spin-dependent central, tensor, and spin-orbit distribution functions. This EEF is constructed as an extension of the previously proposed one for the Argonne v6' potential, including central and tensor forces. The Euler-Lagrange equations derived from this EEF are solved numerically. The obtained fully minimized energy with this EEF is in good agreement with that obtained from the auxiliary field diffusion Monte Carlo calculation.
