Nuclear dynamics should be based on QCD with quarks and gluons interacting via a gauge field. But as we have learned during this summer school, a complete treatment of interacting quarks and gluons is hard even for a simple system like a nucléon. In order to calculate properties of a nuclear many-body system, a quark and gluon model appears prohibitively difficult. One may be able to gain some insight from non-relativistic quark models and the use of symmetry properties to relate some relevant quantities like coupling constants and masses of various particles.
