DTP 2023 | Ab Initio Methods and Emerging Technologies for Nuclear Structure
The 2023 ECT* Doctoral Training Programme edition focuses on ab initio nuclear theory, with emphasis on modern computational methods and emerging technologies. The past decade has seen considerable progress in this field, leading to fully fledged computations with three-nucleon forces in medium mass isotopes. High-performance computing is now pivotal to the quest for reaching predictions of complex and heavy isotopes. Future frontiers will exploit Machine Learning and Quantum Computing algorithms as tools for many-body nuclear physics.
The aim of the DTP 2023 is to provide the participants with a pedagogical introduction to many-body theories that allow a deep understanding of nuclear structure, present the open challenges in relation to modelling nuclear reactions and interaction with weak probes, and providing know how for implementation with high-performance and GPU computing. By the end of the program, the participants are expected to have a thorough understanding of current challenges in nuclear structure, have the background knowledge to grasp novel opportunities in the field, and should be equipped with the numerical tools to make their own contributions in tackling open problems.
