||Towards The Universal Nuclear Energy Density Functional
||The UNEDF SciDAC project to develop and optimize the energy density functional for atomic nuclei using state-of-the art computational infrastructure is briefly described. The ultimate goal is to replace current phenomenological models of the nucleus with a well-founded microscopic theory with minimal uncertainties, capable of describing nuclear data and extrapolating to unknown regions.
||The UNEDF SciDAC Collaboration is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)
under grant No. DOE-FC02-09ER41583. This work was also supported by DOE Contract

Research), and DE-FG03-03NA00083 (Stewardship Science Academic Alliances).
