Knowing What You Don't Know: Nuclear Physics, Effective Field Theory and Uncertainty Quantification

Daniel Phillips (Ohio)

Abstract: For almost a century physicists have devoted intense attention

to teasing out the nature of the nuclear force. But there remains much

that we do not know about the way neutrons and protons interact, and the

way that they come together to form nuclei. In this talk I will show how

two tools–effective field theory and Bayesian probability theory—can

provide quantitative assessments of the impact of the things that we

don’t know about nuclear physics on the observables that are measured in
