Gaute Hagen, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Advances in coupled‐cluster computations of nuclei
Argonne Physics Division Colloquium - 4 Dec 2015
11:00 AM, Building 203 auditorium

In this talk I will present recent highlights in ab initio computations of nuclei using coupled‐cluster theory with interactions and currents from chiral effective field theory. The topics I will discuss include: (i) accurate nuclear binding energies and radii of light and medium mass nuclei from a chiral interaction, (ii) the neutral- and weak-charge distributions and electric dipole polarizability of 48Ca, quantities that are currently targeted by precision measurements worldwide, and (iii) the microscopic origins of the quenching of the axial vector coupling gA.
