Nuclear energy density functional method: going beyond the minefield




B. Bally (CEA ESNT, contact), J.P. Ebran (CEA DAM DIF, SPN), T. Duguet (CEA DRF Saclay, DPhN)


The main goals of the workshop are to:
1. gather the community of EDF practitioners,
2. review the recent progress in the field across its different dimensions: from the design of new functionals to its numerical implementations and applications,
3. discuss possible connections with nuclear ab initio methods and identify ideas that could be imported in the field,
4. exchange ideas regarding future developments of the method.
