Recent Activity at INT:

Nuclear ab initio Theories and Neutrino Physics (INT-18-1a)
(INT Program February 26 - March 30, 2018)

Reported by C. Barbieri, O. Benhar, A. Galindo-Uribarri, A. Lovato, J. Menéndez
Reported on July 2, 2018
Ab initio nuclear theory have reached the degree of maturity to describe the structure and electroweak interactions of atomic nuclei. This paves the way to quantitative predictions on the interaction of neutrinos with nuclei, which span broad energy and momentum regimes. This is a required input for a quantitative study of fundamental symmetries and astrophysical processes. Read more...

Multi-Scale Problems Using Effective Field Theories (INT-18-1b)
(INT Program May 7 - June 1, 2018)

Reported by E. Braaten, N. Brambilla, T. Schäfer, A. Vairo
Reported on June 19, 2018
Many contemporary open problems at the frontiers of nuclear and particle physics are characterized by the existence of a separation of scales that can be exploited using effective field theories (EFTs). The EFT method treats the low energy degrees of freedom as dynamical fields, and takes into account higher-energy scales systematically through matching conditions. Read more...

Astro-Solids, Dense Matter, and Gravitational Waves (INT-18-71W)
(INT Workshop April 16 - 20, 2018)

Reported by N. Andersson, C. Horowitz, M. Alessandra Papa
Reported on May 7, 2018
At the dawn of gravitational-wave astronomy, there is renewed focus on the range of astrophysical sources and the information that can be extracted from observations. This one-week workshop motivated new theoretical work on continuous gravitational-wave sources and improved the communication between nuclear physicists, gravitational-wave experts, and astrophysicists working on dense matter and compact objects.
