Nuclear Effective Field Theories: Reverberations of the Early Days

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

6 Scopus citations


Effective field theories are recognized nowadays as the framework to describe low-energy nuclear structure and reactions consistently with the underlying theory of the strong interactions, QCD. It was not always so. As we celebrate the 30 years of the first publications, I collect here some memories from those early days. I also discuss some of the key issues that were raised back then and, despite all progress, are still with us.
