Recent results on light nuclei from hyper-spherical harmonics

Ab-initio calculations of ground states and excited states of nuclei are
needed for understanding and predicting nuclear phenomena.
From a comparison of experimental data with accurate calculations where the
only ingredient is the nuclear Hamiltonian we can gain a deeper understanding of
the strong force and of three-body forces. Hyper-spherical harmonics
provide a valuable framework for precision calculation of light nuclei.
Predictions from modern Hamiltonians, including chiral effective
field theory potentials, can be obtained. I will report on recent calculations
for 6He and on some preliminary results of the 4He electron scattering reaction.
