FUSTIPEN Topical Meeting
«Understanding nuclear structure and reactions microscopically, including the continuum»
March 17-21, 2014, GANIL, Caen, France

This FUSTIPEN Topical Meeting is a follow-on to last year’s meeting on “The microscopic description of light nuclei”, held at GANIL in March 2013. That meeting observed the progress in determining the nucleon-nucleon (NN) and three-nucleon (NNN) interactions from Effective Field Theory; in producing “soft” versions of these interactions, suitable for direct applications in nuclear structure calculations; and in improving existing many-body techniques as well as in developing new approaches for describing light nuclei.

The aim of the FUSTIPEN topical meeting on “Understanding Nuclear Structure and Reactions Microscopically, including the Continuum” is to bring together a diversity of researchers, both theorists and experimentalists, who are working on different aspects of this problem, from those doing Effective Field Theory and constructing nucleon-nucleon (NN) and three-nucleon interactions to those developing new microscopic many-body approaches for calculating nuclear structure and reactions.

The goal of the meeting is to stimulate discussions and to start new collaborations among these researchers on how to advance from the present state of the art for these fields to new ideas for improved NN and many-N interactions; to the extension of successful microscopic techniques for light nuclei, i.e., A<20, to heavier nuclei; and to entirely new approaches for handling medium-to-heavy mass nuclei, including the continuum.
