Deuteron Compton Scattering in Effective Field Theory

Silas R. Beane

University of Washington

A short introduction and motivation of effective field theory methods in nuclear physics will be presented [1]. I will then discuss recent calculations of deuteron Compton scattering in effective field theories without pions [2][3] and with pions [4].
