Intellectual Merit: Results of this project will provide experimentalists with long overdue tools to analyze deuteron stripping reactions in direct and inverse kinematics with stable and exotic nuclei. It will affect nuclear reaction theory, nuclear astrophysics, and few-body physics. Many intellectual challenges discussed in this project have been summarized in the NSAC Long Range Plan [NSAC]. The Joint SuperUsers Meeting of FRIB Theory Group, MSU, East Lansing, 18-20 August 2011, has identified low-energy reaction theory as an area of the most critical need due to the lack of progress. Our research will involve students providing them with training and experience in the interdisciplinary field of nuclear science that are of societal relevance. We anticipate the development of technology from computer science, mathematics, and physics and integrating into a common framework. Areas of common interest include few-body nuclear reactions and scattering, resonance coupling, and multi-channel scattering. Our final deliverables will be computer codes for the analysis of a new generation of experiments with nuclear astrophysics goals. Amount reported: Full amount for duration of grant
