Title: Quantification of Uncertainties in Nuclear Density Functional Theory

Abstract

Reliable predictions of nuclear properties are needed as much to answer fundamental science questions as in applications such as reactor physics or data evaluation. Nuclear density functional theory is currently the only microscopic, global approach to nuclear structure that is applicable throughout the nuclear chart. In the past few years, a lot of effort has been devoted to setting up a general methodology to assess theoretical uncertainties in nuclear DFT calculations. Here, we summarize some of the recent progress in this direction. Most of the new material discussed here will be be published in separate articles.
