Statistical uncertainties of a chiral interaction at next-to-next-to leading order
Journal article, 2015

We have quantified the statistical uncertainties of the low-energy coupling-constants (LECs) of an optimized nucleon-nucleon interaction from chiral effective field theory at next-to-next-to-leading order. In addition, we have propagated the impact of the uncertainties of the LECs to two-nucleon scattering phase shifts, effective range parameters, and deuteron observables.
