Beyond the no core shell model: Extending the NCSM to heavier nuclei

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The No Core Shell Model (NCSM) is an ab initio method for calculating the properties of light nuclei, up to about A=20, in which all A nucleons are treated as being active. It is difficult to go to larger A values due to the rapid grow of the basis spaces required in order to obtain converged results. In this presentation we briefly discuss three new techniques for extending the NCSM to heavier mass nuclei.
