Spin-isospin correlated configurations in complex nuclei and neutron skin effect in W± production in high-energy proton-lead collisions

We extend our Monte Carlo generator of global configurations in nuclei to include different spatial distributions of protons and neutrons in heavy nuclei taking into account the difference of spatial

Improved Monte Carlo Glauber predictions at present and future nuclear colliders

We present the results of an improved Monte Carlo Glauber (MCG) model of relevance for collisions involving nuclei at center-of-mass energies of the BNL Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (sNN=0.2 TeV),

Revealing minijet dynamics via centrality dependence of double parton interactions in proton–nucleus collisions

One of the main challenges hampering an accurate measurement of the double parton scattering (DPS) cross sections is the difficulty in separating the DPS from the leading twist (LT) contributions. We

Neutron skin effect in W$^+$ and W$^-$ production in high-energy proton-lead collisions

We extend our Monte Carlo generator of global configurations in nuclei to include different spatial distributions of protons and neutrons in heavy nuclei taking into account the difference of spatial

Two-body nucleon-nucleon correlations in Glauber-like models

We investigate the role of the central two-body nucleon-nucleon correlations on typical quantities observed in relativistic heavy-ion collisions. Basic correlation measures, such as the fluctuations

Initial state anisotropies and their uncertainties in ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions from the Monte Carlo Glauber model

In hydrodynamical modeling of heavy-ion collisions, the initial-state spatial anisotropies are translated into momentum anisotropies of the final-state particle distributions. Thus, understanding the

Evidence for x-dependent proton color fluctuations in pA collisions at the LHC

We argue that the pattern of the deviation from the Glauber approximation prediction for the centrality dependence of the rate of forward jet production observed in pA collisions at the LHC provides

Progress in the Glauber Model at Collider Energies

We review the theoretical and experimental progress in the Glauber model of multiple nucleon and/or parton scatterings, after the last 10--15 years of operation with proton and nuclear beams at the

Initial state characteristics of proton-nucleus collisions from Glauber Monte Carlo

Fluctuations in physics observables in high energy ion collisions have been a topic of particular interest in recent years as they may provide important signals regarding the formation of quark-gluon

Recent observation of short range nucleon correlations in nuclei and their implications for the structure of nuclei and neutron stars

Novel processes probing the decay of nucleus after removal of a nucleon with momentum larger than Fermi momentum by hard probes nally proved unambiguously the evidence for long sought presence of

Effects of ground-state correlations on high energy scattering off nuclei: The case of the total neutron-nucleus cross section

With the aim at quantitatively investigating the longstanding problem concerning the effect of short-range nucleon-nucleon correlations on scattering processes at high energies, the total

Tensor forces and the ground-state structure of nuclei.

Two-nucleon momentum distributions are calculated for the ground states of nuclei with mass number A< or =8, using variational Monte Carlo wave functions derived from a realistic Hamiltonian with

Correlations and fluctuations in high-energy nuclear collisions.

TLDR
The interplay between cross-section fluctuations, from color transparency and opacity, and nuclear correlations is calculated and found to be able to account for large fluctuations in transverse energy spectra.

Variational calculation of the ground state of 16O.

We report variational calculations of the ground state of {sup 16}O with realistic two- and three-nucleon interactions. The trial wave function is constructed from pair- and triplet-correlation

Proton-neutron and proton-proton correlations in medium-weight nuclei and the role of the tensor force.

TLDR
Although this Letter is primarily aimed at understanding the role of the tensor force on nucleon momentum distributions of medium-weight nuclei, the possible relevance of the results for the interpretation of (e, e'N) and (e'2N) processes at high Q2, aimed at investigating nucleon-nucleon correlations, is discussed.
