Description

This talk starts with a review of ab initio nuclear structure theory, covering the various different methods currently being used.  It then considers measurements of nuclear structure in low-energy experiments and the complementary information one might deduce from relativistic heavy-ion collisions.  The talk then focuses on nuclear lattice simulations and the calculation of A-nucleon probability distributions.  The cluster structure of several light nuclei are presented and predictions are discussed for 16O-16O and 20Ne-20Ne collisions.
