Particle transfer reactions provide information on the single-particle structure of nuclei, with the caveat of imperfect reaction theory. In this paper, Bayesian analysis is applied in order to estimate the theoretical uncertainties associated with both the extraction of spectroscopic factors and the assignment of orbital angular momentum values from a pickup reaction. The authors find that these uncertainties are closely tied to experimental conditions, and discuss how to reduce their influence on future measurements.
