Walk on the neutron-rich side
Tremendous progress has been made in the past few years in predicting and measuring properties of neutron-rich systems, both theoretically and experimentally. Very exciting results, among others, concern the possibility to observe neutron resonances, the exploration of light isotopes on both sides of the neutron drip-line, the characterisation of fundamental properties of neutron-rich midmass nuclei and observations of neutron stars masses and radii. Understanding such exotic systems challenges our knowledge built on stable nuclei, demanding a deeper insight in nuclear interactions and many-body theories as well as novel experimental developments. The workshop intends to bring together experts working on the physics of neutron-rich systems, from exotic nuclei to neutron stars. Its goal is to identify theory and experimental needs to help constraining models of the nuclear Hamiltonian, in particular the pure-neutron part, to increase the predictive power of theoretical tools and to discuss the requisites that should drive new experiments.
