New ideas in constraining nuclear forces
Review article, 2020

In recent years, nuclear physics has benefited greatly from the development of powerfulab initiomany-body methods and their combination with interactions from chiral effective field theory. With increasing computational power and continuous development of these methods, we are entering an era of precision nuclear physics. Indeed, uncertainties from nuclear Hamiltonians now dominate over uncertainties from many-body methods. This review summarizes the current status of, and future directions in, deriving and constraining nuclear Hamiltonians.
