Lattice QCD input for nuclear structure and reactions
Lattice QCD has begun exploring properties of light nuclear systems beyond their simplest properties such as their lowest-lying spectra. While the progress has been made in the past year in pursuing the physical quark-mass calculations with reasonable precision, technologies have been developed, and results have been obtained, for simplest nuclear matrix elements and nuclear reactions at heavier quark masses. A community effort has been already formed to investigate the impact of such lattice QCD input on the nuclear many-body calculations. Systems involving hyperons and their interactions have been also the focus of intense investigations in the field, with new results and deeper insights emerging. Furthermore, the validity of some of the previous multi-nucleon studies has been questioned during the past year but controversy remains as whether such claims are relevant to a given calculation. This plenary will touch on most of these topics, and will try to bring the newest developments in this field into the spotlight.
