Recent Activity at INT:

Toward Predictive Theories of Nuclear Reactions Across the Isotopic Chart (INT-17-1a)
(INT Program February 27 - March 31, 2017)

Reported by J.E. Escher, J. Blackmon, Ch. Elster, K.D. Launey, D. Lee, and N.D. Scielzo
Reported on May 16, 2017
Recent years have seen exciting new developments and progress in nuclear structure theory, reaction theory, and experimental techniques, that allow us to move towards a description of exotic systems and environments, setting the stage for new discoveries. The purpose of the 5-week program was to bring together physicists from the low-energy nuclear structure and reaction communities to identify avenues for achieving reliable and predictive descriptions of reactions involving nuclei across the isotopic chart. The 4-day embedded workshop focused on connecting theory developments to experimental advances and data needs for astrophysics and other applications. Read more...

SIGN 2017: International Workshop on the Sign Problem in QCD and Beyond (INT-17-64W)
(INT Workshop March 20 - 24, 2017)

Reported by J. Carlson, S. Chandrasekharan, K. Damle, C. Gattringer, D.B. Kaplan, U-J. Wiese
Reported on May 4, 2017
Sign problems are an important stumbling block in applying the Monte Carlo method to solve QCD at finite densities and understand nuclear matter. Sign problems also haunt several other research areas that deal with quantum many body physics, including strongly correlated electronic systems away from half filling and frustrated quantum spin models. This international conference brought together 71 physicists (45 senior researchers, 17 posdoctoral associates, 9 graduate students), interested in this broad area of research. This was the fifth in a series of conferences and the first one organized in the US. Read more...

Spectrum and Structure of Excited Nucleons from Exclusive Electroproduction (INT-16-62W)
(INT Workshop November 14 - 18, 2016)

Reported by V. D. Burkert, R. W. Gothe, V. Mokeev, C. D. Roberts, and A. Szczepaniak
Reported on May 4, 2017
Two of the most basic goals of nuclear physics are to understand the mechanisms responsible for the formation of hadrons and explain their structure in terms of the gluons and quarks of quantum chromodynamics (QCD). In this connection, measurements of the nucleon excitation (N*) spectrum and exploration of N* structure through the study of resonance electro-excitation amplitudes (γνNN* electrocouplings) on a broad domain of photon virtualities (Q2) present unique opportunities for elucidating these crucial aspects of nonperturbative strong-interaction dynamics. The complexity of this problem is great, so a multipronged approach is necessary to achieve its solution. Read more...
