A major goal of nuclear theory is to explain the wealth of data and peculiarities exhibited

by nuclear systems in a fully microscopic approach. In such an approach, which we refer

to as the basic model of nuclear theory, the nucleons interact with each other via twoand

many-body e ective interactions, and with external electroweak probes via e ective

current operators. These e ective interactions and currents are the main inputs to ab-initio

methods that are aimed at solving the many-body Schrodinger equation associated with the

nuclear system under consideration. In this talk, I will review recent progress in Quantum

Monte Carlo calculations of low-lying spectra and electroweak properties of light nuclei and

nucleonic matter equation of state. Emphasis will be placed on calculations based on chiral

e ective eld theory approach.
