A relativistic Green function approach to the inclusive quasielastic (e,e') scattering is presented. The single particle Green function is expanded in terms of the eigenfunctions of the nonhermitian optical potential. This allows one to treat final state interactions consistently in the inclusive and in the exclusive reactions. Numerical results for the response functions and the cross sections for different target nuclei and in a wide range of kinematics are presented and discussed in…

Models for quasielastic electron and neutrino-nucleus scattering

Models developed for the exclusive and inclusive quasielastic electron-nucleus scattering have been extended to quasielastic neutrino-nucleus scattering. Different descriptions of final-state

We study the impact of the description of the knockout nucleon wave function on electron- and neutrino-induced quasielastic and single-pion production cross sections. We work in a fully relativistic

Final-state interactions and superscaling in the semi-relativistic approach to quasielastic electron and neutrino scattering

The semi-relativistic approach to electron and neutrino quasielastic scattering from nuclei is extended to include final-state interactions. Starting with the usual nonrelativistic continuum shell

We present theoretical predictions for electron scattering on Z = 20 isotopic and N = 20 isotonic chain. The calculations are done within the framework of the distorted-wave Born approximation for



Relativistic calculation of nuclear transparency in(e,e′p)reactions

Nuclear transparency in (e,e'p) reactions is evaluated in a fully relativistic distorted wave impulse approximation model. The relativistic mean field theory is used for the bound state and the Pauli

Relativistic corrections in (e,e'p) knockout reactions

A consistent comparison between nonrelativistic and relativistic descriptions of the (e,e'p) reaction is presented. We use the nonrelativistic DWEEPY code and develop a fully relativistic model

Final-state interactions and relativistic effects in the quasielastic (e,e') reaction.

The longitudinal and transverse response functions for the inclusive quasielastic (e,e') reaction are analyzed in detail and quantitatively demonstrate the importance of such a treatment of final state interactions for both the transverse and longitudinal response.

Relativistic corrections in (γ,N) knockout reactions

We develop a fully relativistic DWIA model for photonuclear reactions using the relativistic mean field theory for the bound state and the Pauli reduction of the scattering state which is calculated

Two-body currents in inclusive electron scattering.

The microscopic model presented here incorporates two-body currents derived from one-pion exchange and intermediate {Delta} excitation that demonstrates that, even for quasielastic kinematics, two- body currents give a substantial contribution to the transverse structure function.

Quasielastic (e,e') sum rule saturation.

The degree to which a regime of validity can be expected for this sum rule, and its location, is considered, and the breakdown of the sum rule as the momentum transfer increases is examined.
