About the lecture:

Ubirajara van Kolck is directeur de recherche at Institut de Physique Nucleaire d’Orsay (IPNO) and professor at the Department of Physics, University of Arizona. His main research is on Effective Field Theories (EFTs), in particular their applications to problems at the interface between particle and nuclear physics, and to problems in molecular physics. EFTs separate the energy scales in a physical system and use their small ratios as parameters for controlled expansions of low-energy observables, even in the presence of strong interactions among many bodies. Nuclear systems are particularly interesting from a theoretical perspective as they require selective summations of terms in these expansions, while plenty of data exist to confront the theory.
