Frontiers in Nuclear Physics

November 21-23, 2023

Bethe Center for Theoretical Physics, Bonn, Germany

Understanding strongly interacting matter is still one of the great challenges to the Standard Model. In the framework of the ERC AdG "EXOTIC" we tackle three main lines of research, which are:

  • Precision calculations of the nuclear drip lines
  • Strange nuclei and the nuclear equation of state
  • How fine-tuned is nucleosythesis?

The main tools are effective field theories for hadron and nuclei, as well as nuclear lattice effective field theory, which combines EFT and stochastic simulation methods. The workshop brings together researchers in the field of NLEFT as well as a number of renowned nuclear theorists using different methods.

The workshop will be centered above the aforementioned topics, featuring recent developments in the areas of methods, algorithms and physics results. It should serve as an intermedite review of the EXOTIC proram after two years of funding and is intended to lay out the work to be done in the coming years.
