Chiral EFT and the three-nucleon force problem



Three-nucleon forces constitute an important frontier in nuclear physics. They play a significant role in theoretical studies of nuclear structure and reactions [1,2], the equation of states for nuclear matter and ongoing efforts towards uncovering the limits of stability of atomic nuclei. I will discuss the general structure of the three-nucleon force [3], review the ongoing work towards deriving three-nucleon forces in chiral EFT, see [4] and references therein, and consider selected applications [5].
