Abstract: Uncertainty quantification has seen a strong renewed interest in recent years within the theoretical nuclear physics community and its importance can hardly be overstated. As chiral effective field theories expand their range of applicability across the nuclear chart, the study of the effects of statistical and systematic uncertainties in nuclear structure calculations is still a work in progress. This seminar will review some of the techniques and efforts on quantifying statistical uncertainties in NN interactions and their subsequent propagation into the calculation nuclear structure observables. Recent progress on the propagation of statistical uncertainties into astrophysical phenomena will be discussed as well.
