ABSTRACT We present lattice results for the ground state energies of tritium, helium-3, helium-4, lithium-6, and carbon-12 nuclei. Our analysis includes isospin breaking, Coulomb effects, and interactions up to next-to-next-to-leading order in chiral effective field theory.

    ABSTRACT: An ab initio calculation of the ^{12}C elastic form factor and sum rules of longitudinal and transverse response functions measured in inclusive (e, e^{'}) scattering are reported, based on realistic nuclear potentials and electromagnetic currents. The longitudinal elastic form factor and sum rule are found to be in satisfactory agreement with available experimental data. A direct comparison between theory and experiment is difficult for the transverse sum rule. However, it is shown that the calculated transverse sum rule has large contributions from two-body currents, indicating that these mechanisms lead to a significant enhancement of the quasielastic transverse response. This fact may have implications for the anomaly observed in recent neutrino quasielastic charge-changing scattering experiments on ^{12}C.

    ABSTRACT: Coupled-cluster (CC) theory represents an important theoretical tool that we use to solve the quantum many-body problem. CC theory also lends itself to computation in a parallel computing environment. In this paper, we present selected results from ab initio studies of stable and weakly bound nuclei utilizing computational techniques that we employ to solve CC theory. We also outline several perspectives for future research directions in this area.

    ABSTRACT: Chiral effective field theory provides a systematic tool to study few-nucleon dynamics based on the approximate and spontaneously broken chiral symmetry of QCD. I discuss applications of this method to nuclear forces and few-nucleon dynamics. Various related topics including recent advances in nuclear lattice simulations are also addressed.
