Chiral effective field theory and nuclear forces
We review how nuclear forces emerge from low-energy QCD via chiral eective eld theory. The presentation is accessible to the non-specialist. At the same time, we also provide considerable detailedExpand
Accurate charge dependent nucleon nucleon potential at fourth order of chiral perturbation theory
We present the first nucleon-nucleon potential at next-to-next-to-next-to-leading order (fourth order) of chiral perturbation theory. Charge dependence is included up to next-to-leading order of theExpand
The High precision, charge dependent Bonn nucleon-nucleon potential (CD-Bonn)
We present a charge-dependent one-boson-exchange nucleon-nucleon $(\mathrm{NN})$ potential that fits the world proton-proton data below 350 MeV available in the year 2000 with aExpand
The Meson Theory of Nuclear Forces and Nuclear Structure
Nowadays it has become customary in nuclear physics to denote by “tradition” the approach that considers nucleons and mesons as the relevant degrees of freedom. It is the purpose of this chapter toExpand
High-quality two-nucleon potentials up to fifth order of the chiral expansion
We present NN potentials through five orders of chiral effective field theory ranging from leading order (LO) to next-to-next-to-next-to-next-to-leading order (N4LO). The construction may beExpand
Optimized chiral nucleon-nucleon interaction at next-to-next-to-leading order.
We optimize the nucleon-nucleon interaction from chiral effective field theory at next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO). The resulting new chiral force NNLO(opt) yields χ(2)≈1 per degree of freedomExpand
Peripheral nucleon-nucleon scattering at fifth order of chiral perturbation theory
We present the two- and three-pion exchange contributions to the nucleon-nucleon interaction which occur at next-to-next-to-next-to-next-to-leading order (N4LO, fifth order) of chiral effective fieldExpand
Shell model description of the 14C dating beta decay with Brown-Rho-scaled NN interactions.
We present shell model calculations for the beta decay of 14C to the 14N ground state, treating the states of the A=14 multiplet as two 0p holes in an 16O core. We employ low-momentum nucleon-nucleonExpand
Nuclear-matter equation of state with consistent two- and three-body perturbative chiral interactions
3 H- 3 He Gamow-Teller transition matrix element. In this way, the saturation properties of nuclear matter are reproduced in a parameter-free approach. The equation of state is computed up to thirdExpand
