"Neutrinos and Nuclei" by Professor Saori Pastore, Department of Physics, Washington University in Saint Louis

Abstract:  The past decade has witnessed tremendous progress in the theoretical and computational tools that produce our understanding of light nuclei. A number of microscopic calculations of nuclear structure and reactions have successfully explained the available experimental data, yielding a complex picture of the way nuclei interact with electroweak probes. In this talk, I will present recent progress in microscopic calculations of nuclear structure and reactions, with emphasis on their impact on major experiments probing fundamental symmetries and neutrino properties.
