A systematic study of terminating states in the Asimilar to50 mass region using the self-consistent Skyrme-Hartree-Fock model is presented. The objective of this study is to demonstrate that the terminating states, due to their intrinsic simplicity, offer unique and so far unexplored opportunities to study different aspects of the effective NN interaction or nuclear local energy density functional. In particular, we show that the agreement of the calculations to the data depends on the spin fields and the spin-orbit term which, in turn, allows us to constrain the appropriate Landau parameters and the strength of the spin-orbit potential. The present study reveals that the structure and energy of terminating states can be used as a tool to differentiate among the many Skyrme force parametrizations.
