A Many-Body Approach to Nuclear Structure

Alexandros Gezerlis, University of Washington
Tuesday, February 14, 11:00 AM - Theory Seminar
NSCL Seminar Room

In this talk I will discuss both finite and infinite systems. The physical settings will range from heavy nuclei, to neutron stars, and down to ultracold atomic gases. More specifically, I intend to talk about quantum many-body theory in various forms, most notably energy-density functionals and microscopic Monte Carlo simulations on modern supercomputers. Touching upon many theoretical methods, I will attempt to show the unifying thread: experimental evidence that constrains both terrestrial and astrophysical systems.
