Title: Towards The Universal Nuclear Energy Density Functional
Authors: Mario Stoitsov, Jorge Moré, Witold Nazarewicz, Junchen Pei, Jason Sarich, Nicolas Schunck, Andrzej Staszczak, Stefan Wild
Abstract: 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.
