Ground-state nuclear properties of Mo and Ru isotopes were studied within the Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov method with SLy4 and SLy5 Skyrme forces. Nuclei which have neutron numbers close to magic number 50 have received much attention because the nuclei are known well deformed and exhibit anomalous behaviour in the isotope shifts. Therefore, a systematic study of even-even Mo and Ru isotopes was carried out. Almost all ground-state properties which include binding energy per nucleon, quadrupole deformation, nuclear radii, two-neutron separation energy and shape-coexistence for axially deformed Mo and Ru isotopes were analyzed. The results were compared with available experimental data and predictions of some nuclear models (Finite Range Liquid-Drop Model (FRDM), Extended Thomas Fermi Model with Strutinski Integral (ETF-SI) and Relativistic Mean Field (RMF) Theory) and discussed in detail. The results show that the HFB method with SLy4 and SLy5 Skyrme forces is capable of describing of isotopic chain of even-even Mo and Ru nuclei.
