Abstract: At the core of nuclear physics is making predictions for complex phenomena occurring in the hottest and densest environments in nature, determining how ordinary matter interacts with mysterious dark matter or other new particles, and revealing any violation of fundamental symmetries of nature using nuclear targets. To achieve an unprecedented accuracy in addressing these questions, the field has started to eliminate its reliance on phenomenological models, and has entered an era when the underlying interactions are set to those in the Standard Model of particle physics. Light nuclear systems can now emerge directly from the numerical method of lattice QCD. Few-body observables, such as few-hadron interactions and scattering amplitudes, as well as transition amplitudes and reaction rates, have been the focus of this vastly growing field. These results can advance and improve nuclear many-body calculations of exceedingly more complex systems.
