The workshop “Deuteron-induced reactions and beyond: Inclusive breakup fragment cross sections” will be held from July 18 to July 22 at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) in East Lansing, Michigan.
 
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 be held at the FRIB theory trailer (Building no. 7 in the MSU campus map). Sessions will start at 9am on Monday July 18th, and will end in the afternoon of Friday July 22nd. The meeting 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.
