The relativistic mean-field model with density-dependent DD-ME2 and DD-PC1 interactions has been used for the investigation of the ground-state shape evolution of neutron-rich (83-91) As isotopes. For this purpose, the potential energy curve and the potential energy surface of each nucleus of interest have been examined. From analyzing the potential energy surfaces of the neutron-rich (83-91) As isotopic chain, (87) As is suggested to be a possible candidate for triaxial nucleus. Furthermore, studies of some ground-state nuclear properties of As isotopes such as energy, size and deformation have been obtained.
