Title: Nuclear Computational Low Energy Initiative (NUCLEI)

Abstract

This is the Final Report for Ohio State University for the NUCLEI SciDAC­3 project. In addition to the local OSU summary given here, we have attached a global NUCLEI summary and a list of papers and talks by the full collaboration, with OSU contributions marked in red. The NUCLEI project, as defined by the scope of work, developed, implemented and ran codes for large­scale computations of many topics in low­energy nuclear physics. Physics studied included the properties of nuclei and nuclear decays, nuclear structure and reactions, and the properties of nuclear matter. The computational techniques used included Quantum Monte Carlo, Configuration Interaction, Coupled Cluster, In­Medium SRG, and Density Functional methods. The research program emphasized areas of high interest to current and possible future DOE nuclear physics facilities, including ATLAS and FRIB (nuclear structure and reactions, and nuclear astrophysics), TJNAF (neutron distributions in nuclei, few body systems, and electroweak processes), NIF (thermonuclear reactions), MAJORANA and FNPB (neutrinoless double­beta decay and physics beyond the Standard Model), and LANSCE (fission studies). Research at Ohio State University played an integral role in NUCLEI by providing input microscopic interactions and operators needed for ab initio structure and reaction calculations including uncertainty quantification, independent ab initiomore » calculations using the in­medium similarity renormalization group (IM­SRG), and developing microscopic constraints for the next­generation energy density functionals (EDF). Much of the theoretical work at OSU was closely coordinated with the theory team at Michigan State University. Although the OSU group did not usually directly develop codes for the highest performance computing components of NUCLEI, we provided needed inputs for much of the effort. In particular, our work contributes to the “Validated Nuclear Interactions” task as well as to both of the “Structure and Reactions” tasks.« less
