### Abstract

The antiproton annihilation experiments help to extract so-called peripheral factors representing the ratio of neutron to proton densities at the annihilation site that is about 2.5 fm away from the half-density radius of the nucleus. The relativistic mean field (RMF) approach is used to calculate the peripheral factors. The RMF equations (with frozen gap) and relativistic Hartree-Bogoliubov (RHB) equations (with finite range Gogny interaction-D1S for pairing) are solved employing the basis expansion method. The RHB equations are also solved in the coordinate space using a large box (30 fm); with an effective zero range density dependent interaction (consistent with Gogny D1S interaction) for pairing. The results are analyzed to ascertain quantitatively the effect of using these different techniques for solving the RMF/RHB equations. The calculated peripheral factors obtained by solving RHB equations in the coordinate space are relatively closer to the corresponding experimental values.
