Nuclear structure theory based on ab initio ideas is presented.
Applications to the structure of the Hoyle state in 12C (triple alpha fusion), S-factor calculations within many-body scattering theory for 3He + alpha -> 7Be + gamma, and structure of 229Th for testing variations of natural constants are presented.
