This paper summarizes theoretical predictions for the density and isospin dependence of the nuclear mean field and the corresponding nuclear equation of state. We compare predictions from microscopic and phenomenological approaches. An application to heavy-ion reactions requires to incorporate these forces into the framework of dynamical transport models. Constraints on the nuclear equation of state derived from finite nuclei and from heavy-ion reactions are discussed.

    In medium energy heavy ion collisions, fragments are formed in an expanding system. The isospin composition of the produced fragments may reflect the symmetry energy of such low-density nuclear matter. In fact, the simulations by antisymmetrized molecular dynamics (AMD) show that the fragment...
