Nuclear Physics - Theory

Funding Agency:
National Science Foundation

The nuclear theory program encompasses the structure and reactions of nuclei, and of hadrons in few-nucleon and nuclear environments, and the quark/gluon substructure expressed by Quantum Chromodynamics. Supported research includes contributions to fundamental theoretical aspects of nuclear physics, as well as model building and applications to astrophysical phenomena and to experimental programs at facilities such as the National Superconducting Collider Laboratory, the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, and the Jefferson Laboratory. This includes formulating new approaches for theoretical, computational, and experimental research that explore the fundamental laws of physics and the behavior of physical systems; formulating quantitative hypotheses; exploring and analyzing the implications of such hypotheses analytically and computationally; and interpreting the results of experiments. Some awards are co-funded with other programs in the Physics Division and in other divisions.
