Applying the Bloch-Horowitz Equation to s- and p-shell nuclei

I describe the current status of the Bloch-Horowitz (BH) formalism in nuclear many-body calculations. I present results for s- and certain p-shell nuclei using the leading-order perturbative expansion of BH, and make comparisons with GFMC and No-Core shell model (NCSM) results. I elaborate on the shortcomings of this formalism and stress the need for incorporating a mean-field-like interaction into future calculations using BH.
