We propose a method to introduce Fock term contributions in relativistic models of fermions coupled to mesons, including self-interactions for the mesonic fields.

Abstract

We propose a method to introduce Fock term contributions in relativistic models of fermions coupled to mesons, including self-interactions for the mesonic fields. We show that effects on equilibrium properties and on the dynamical response of the fermionic system can be consistently accounted for. Some implications on equilibrium properties of asymmetric nuclear matter are discussed. In particular an indication is emerging for a reduced contribution of charged mesons to the symmetry term of the nuclear equation of state around normal density.
