The Nuclear Physics of Charm

The idea that the recently discovered X(3872) is a shallow molecular
bound state of D0* anti-D0 and anti-D0* D0 mesons is extremely
attractive and has motivated numerous calculations of X(3872)
properties using effective-range theory. Going beyond this
approximation requires including effects from dynamical pion exchange.
This can be achieved through the use of effective field theory
techniques. In this talk I will present X-EFT, the effective field
theory which describes the dynamics of the X(3872), and use it to
calculate various decays of the X(3872) into pions and P-wave
charmonium states.
