These lectures present an introduction into the theory of nuclear forces. We focus mainly on the modern approach, in which the forces between nucleons emerge from low-energy QCD via chiral effective field theory.

    We study the mass, width and couplings of the lightest resonance multiplet with I(JPC) 1(1--) quantum numbers. Effective field theories based on chiral symmetry are employed in order to describe the form factor associated with the two pseudoscalar matrix element of the QCD vector current. The...

    We present lattice calculations for the ground-state energy of dilute neutron matter at next-to-leading order in chiral effective field theory. This study follows a series of recent papers on low-energy nuclear physics using chiral effective field theory on the lattice. In this work we introduce...

    Chiral effective field theory allows for a systematic and model-independent derivation of the forces between nucleons in harmony with the symmetries of the quantum chromodynamics. After a brief review on the current status in the development of the chiral nuclear forces I will focus on the role...

    The combination of nuclear forces derived from chiral effective field theory with simulation methods allows for a model-independent calculation of nuclei. The formulation of this approach is briefly discussed and first results are shown.

  • Nuclear Forces from Chiral EFT: The Unresolved Issues. Machleidt, R. // Few-Body Systems;May2011, Vol. 50 Issue 1-4, p83 

    In recent years, there has been substantial progress in the derivation of nuclear forces from chiral effective field theory (EFT). Accurate two-nucleon forces have been constructed at next-to-next-to-next-to-leading order (NLO) and applied (together with three-nucleon forces at NNLO) to nuclear...

    The correlator of vector and non-singlet axial-vector currents in the external electromagnetic field is calculated within the instanton liquid model of the QCD vacuum. In general the correlator has two Lorentz structures: longitudinal, wL, and transversal, wT, with respect to the axial-vector...

    The color-flavor transformation is applied in the QCD strong coupling limit to construct the effective chiral Lagrangian. The calculations are performed by placing the fermions onto two different sub-lattices and by making use of the long-distance approximation and gradient expansion. The saddle...
