Chiral EFT for nuclear forces: State of the art and future perspectives

by Prof. Evgeny Epelbaum (Ruhr-Universitaet Bochum)


Nuclear forces derived in chiral EFT are nowadays extensively used to study low-energy nuclear reactions and describe properties of nuclei and nuclear matter.  I review the current status of the theory and describe our ongoing efforts towards developing  this theoretical approach into a precision tool. Topics addressed include the two- and  three-nucleon forces, applications to light systems and uncertainty quantification.
