Effective Field Theory analysis of 3He-α scattering data

We treat low-energy 3He-α elastic scattering in an Effective Field Theory (EFT) that exploits the separation of scales in this reaction. We compute the amplitude up to Next-to-Next-to-Leading Order

Emulating \emph{ab initio} computations of infinite nucleonic matter

We construct efficient emulators for the ab initio computation of the infinite nuclear matter equation of state. These emulators are based on the subspace-projected coupled-cluster method for which we

Analyzing rotational bands in odd-mass nuclei using effective field theory and Bayesian methods

We recently developed an Effective Field Theory (EFT) for rotational bands in odd-mass nuclei. Here we use EFT expressions to perform a Bayesian analysis of data on the rotational energy levels of

Uncertainty quantification in electromagnetic observables of nuclei

We present strategies to quantify theoretical uncertainties in modern ab initio calculations of electromagnetic observables in light and medium-mass nuclei. We discuss how uncertainties build up from

Combining the in-medium similarity renormalization group with the density matrix renormalization group: Shell structure and information entropy

We propose a novel many-body framework combining the density matrix renormalization group (DMRG) with the valence-space (VS) formulation of the in-medium similarity renormalization group. This hybrid

Neutrinoless Double-Beta Decay: A Roadmap for Matching Theory to Experiment

The observation of neutrino oscillations and hence non-zero neutrino masses provided a milestone in the search for physics beyond the Standard Model. But even though we now know that neutrinos are

Performing Bayesian Analyses With AZURE2 Using BRICK: An Application to the 7Be System

Bayesian uncertainty estimation has been carried out for a simultaneous R-matrix fit of the 3He (α,γ)7Be and 3He(α,α)3He reactions in order to gain further insight into the fitting of capture and scattering data.

Rooting the EDF method into the ab initio framework. PGCM-PT formalism based on MR-IMSRG pre-processed Hamiltonians

Recently, ab initio techniques have been successfully connected to the traditional valence-space shell model. In doing so, they can either explicitly provide ab initio shell-model effective

Bayesian probability updates using sampling/importance resampling: Applications in nuclear theory

We review an established Bayesian sampling method called sampling/importance resampling and highlight situations in nuclear theory when it can be particularly useful. To this end we both analyse a



Energy levels of light nuclei.

This version of A = 17 differs from the published version in that it has corrected some errors discovered after the article went to press and figures and introductions have been omitted from this manuscript.

Perturbative Treatment of Three-Nucleon Force Contact Terms in Three-Nucleon Faddeev Equations

We present a perturbative approach to solving the three-nucleon continuum Faddeev equation. This approach is particularly well suited to dealing with variable strengths of contact terms in a chiral

Exploring Bayesian parameter estimation for chiral effective field theory using nucleon–nucleon phase shifts

We recently developed a Bayesian framework for parameter estimation in general effective field theories. Here we present selected results from using that framework to estimate parameters with a

High-Precision Nuclear Forces From Chiral EFT: State-of-the-Art, Challenges, and Outlook

We review a new generation of nuclear forces derived in chiral effective field theory using the recently proposed semilocal regularization method. We outline the conceptual foundations of nuclear

Efimov States in Nuclear and Particle Physics

Particles with resonant short-range interactions have universal properties that do not depend on the details of their structure or their interactions at short distances. In the three-body system,
