Making sense of scheme-dependent observables

Nuclear observables such as binding energies and cross sections can be directly measured. Other physically useful quantities, such as spectroscopic factors, are related to measured quantities by a convolution whose decomposition is not unique. I'll illustrate the possibilities, pitfalls, and open questions of such scheme-dependent observables for low-energy nuclear physics.
