Monte Carlo Calculations of Nuclei

T-16, LANL

In this talk I present recent progress in GFMC calculations of nuclear structure and scattering. Topics range from static (zero-q) properties of light nuclei including neutron rich systems, to low-energy reactions of particular interest, to exclusive and inclusive electron scattering from the lightest nuclei. Prospects for future studies in heavier systems up to and including the dense neutron-rich matter in neutron stars will be discussed.
