Ab initio calculations in Nuclear physics for atomic nuclei require a specific knowledge of the interactions among their constituents, protons and neutrons. In particular, NN interactions can be constrained down to scale resolutions of Δr ~ 0.6 fm from the study of phase shifts below the pion production threshold. However, this allows for ambiguities and uncertainties which have an impact on finite nuclei, nuclear- and neutron-matter properties. On the other hand the nuclear many body problem… 

A Guided Tour of ab initio Nuclear Many-Body Theory

Over the last decade, new developments in Similarity Renormalization Group techniques and nuclear many-body methods have dramatically increased the capabilities of ab initio nuclear structure and

Peripheral nucleon-nucleon scattering at next-to-next-to-leading order in SU(3) heavy baryon chiral perturbation theory

We calculate the complete T matrices of the elastic nucleon-nucleon scattering up to third order in SU(3) heavy baryon chiral perturbation theory. The phase shifts with orbital angular momentum L ≥ 2

Nucleon-Nucleon binding: the Chemistry of Quarks

The emergence of quarks inside the nucleon has indubitably one objective: nucleon-nucleon (NN) binding for baryonic matter clustering. The binding energy (BE) is directly proportional to the

Compositeness of S-wave weakly-bound states from next-to-leading order Weinberg’s relations

We discuss a model-independent estimator of the likelihood of the compositeness of a shallow S-wave bound or virtual state. The approach is based on an extension of Weinberg’s relations in Weinberg

This study shows that DP-LIBS is an effective method for the quantitative analysis of heavy metals in the soil by adjusting the energy ratio of the two lasers and the best inter-pulse time under the conditions of different laser energies.

Nuclear Binding Energies and NN uncertainties

There is an increasing interest in quantifying the predictive power in nuclear structure calculations. We discuss how both experimental and systematic errors at the NN-level can be used to estimate

The nucleon–nucleon (NN) interaction is the starting point for ab initio nuclear structure and nuclear reactions calculations. These are effectively carried out via effective interactions fitting

Error estimates on Nuclear Binding Energies from Nucleon-Nucleon uncertainties

Despite great theoretical efforts the NN interaction can only be determined with a finite precision, implying an error upper bound for nuclear masses. We analyze for the first time the problem of

Selected aspects of nucleon-nucleon scattering are critically reviewed. Phase shifts are treated relativistically in a manner similar to the usual non- relativistic one. Relativistic kinematics,
