Nuclear Hamiltonians: the question of their spectral predictive power and the associated inverse problem

Abstract : In this paper we introduce a subjective notion of the predictive power of nuclear Hamiltonians (an objective one does not exist) and examine it in the particular context of the single-nucleon energy spectra. We consider various types of uncertainties originating both from the experiment and theory stressing the dominating character of the theoretical errors. The latter originate from the complexity of the nuclear many-body systems that is not matched adequately by the formalism behind the present day nuclear Hamiltonians. The related inverse problem is formulated and the presence of errors (ignorance, lack of knowledge) is parametrized in terms of the associated probability distributions. Various hypotheses concerning the input uncertainties ('numerical noise') are formulated and the impact of the input-uncertainties in the adjustment procedures down to the final parameter values and theoretical spectra is illustrated and discussed. A number of open problems are formulated and listed at the end of the paper.
