With a view on establishing a formalism that integrates consistently the variety of processes driven by the effective nucleon–target interaction (optical potential) – from direct transfer to sharp states to the transfer to wide states, continuum states and capture – the workshop aims to define appropriate observables in the overlapping domains of transfer, surrogate reactions, and nuclear astrophysics, and compare them to calculations from state-of-the-art reaction theory codes. As a specific outcome, we aim to benchmark different existing codes recently developed independently, by calculating a set of observables defined according to the specific needs established in the context of the workshop.
The meeting will start at 9am on Monday July 18th, and will end in the afternoon of Friday July 22nd. It will comprise of a small number of talks limited to the morning session followed by time in the afternoon to discuss, collaborate, and progress towards the above defined goal.
