Abstract: We investigate the shape phase transition in even-even
Gd and
Dy isotopes within the proton-neutron
interacting boson model (IBM-2). The parameters of the IBM-2 Hamiltonian are fixed in two different ways:
the usual phenomenological fitting calculation and the mapping of the constrained self-consistent mean-field
calculation with a Skyrme energy density functional onto the appropriate boson system. Notable differences are
found between the energy surfaces for the phenomenological and the mapped IBM-2. Key quantities for the
collective structural evolution, including level energies,
(E2) values, quadrupole moments, and the two-neutron
separation energies, are analyzed in comparison to the experimental data. We show that the transition in these
quantities occurs rapidly with the neutron number in the IBM-2 phenomenology but is somewhat smeared out
in the mapped IBM-2. The differences in the measurable quantities are consistent with what is suggested by the
energy-surface analysis
