Modern science usually provides both lots of data and very complicated models for the part of reality it is trying to describe. Sometimes there is even so much data, and the models are so complicated, that it becomes difficult to make full use of the data in deciding between models, or finding their properties. The main goal of the GAMBIT project is to write a software tool to help physicists do just that.

Nuclear physics has as its objective the investigation and understanding of nuclei, which are the hearts of atoms and the place where almost all mass of matter resides. The rules of nuclear binding determine the number of stable isotopes and their relative abundance in the world we live. Nuclei are fermion systems comprising from a few to hundred of neutrons and protons. The systems are small enough to exhibit sharp quantum states, but also large enough to show collective degrees of freedom, like vibrations and rotations.
