The correlation between the compression modulus and the skewness coefficient of the nuclear matter ground state implied by the breathing mode data is compared with predictions of the relativistic Hartree approximation (RHA). Retaining explicit dependence on the renormalization scale μ, employed in the RHA, this correlation, together with other considerations, suggests a value for μ/M {reversed tilde equals} 1.2.
