Abstract: 

Alpha clustering effects play an important role in stellar nucleosynthesis. We use effective field theory to describe alpha clustering in light and medium mass nuclei. By studying the competition between Coulomb and strong forces in the formation of cluster configuration, we combine effective-field-theory potentials with Monte Carlo many-body methods, and calculate nuclear spectrum in multi-alpha configurations. We will also explore the connection between unitary Bose gases and alpha clustering states.
