Charge Density of the Neutron

  title={Charge Density of the Neutron},
  author={Gerald A. Miller},
A model-independent analysis of the infinite-momentum-frame charge density of partons in the transverse plane is presented for the nucleon. We find that the neutron parton charge density is negative at the center, so that the square of the transverse charge radius is positive, in contrast with many expectations. Additionally, the proton's central u quark charge density is larger than that of the d quark by about 70 %. The proton (neutron) charge density has a long range positively (negatively… Expand

Model independent results for nucleon structure
I review recent results regarding the nucleon charge and magnetization densities as well as the shape of the nucleon. First, some phenomenolgical considerations that show that the shape of the protonExpand
Study of Spin–Spin Correlations between Quark and a Spin-1/2 Composite System
We study the correlation between the fermion composite system and quark spins by using the light-cone quark–diquark model. We do the calculations for - quark and - quark in the fermion system byExpand
Color Correlations in the Proton
A general QCD light front formalism to compute many-body color charge correlation functions due to quarks in the proton was constructed~\cite{Dumitru:2018vpr}. These enable new studies of colorExpand

Baryons as relativistic three-quark bound states
We review the spectrum and electromagnetic properties of baryons described as relativistic three-quark bound states within QCD. The composite nature of baryons results in a rich excitation spectrum,Expand
