abstractIn this talk I give an introduction to the method of lattice effective field theory, which is the combination of effective field theory and numerical lattice techniques.  I then discuss several recent results from the Nuclear Lattice Effective Field Theory Collaboration.  The first is the connection between microscopic nuclear forces and nuclear structure.  This centers on a basic question of what are the truly essential features of the nuclear force needed to produce the observed properties of atomic nuclei.  The second is the development of first principles simulations of the thermodynamics of nuclei and nuclear matter.
