Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Significant progress has been made in our microscopic understanding of the properties of light nuclei, starting from the basic nucleon-nucleon and three-nucleon interactions among the particles inside the nucleus. The main challenge now is to extend these successes for light nuclei (A ≤ 16) to heavier mass nuclei. Here we discuss three recent approaches within the No Core Shell Model for possibly going beyond the 0p-shell.
