We calculate the triton binding energy with a non-local NN potential that fits the world NN data below 350 MeV with the almost perfect χ 2 /datum of 1.03. The non-locality is derived from relativistic meson field theory. The result obtained in a 34-channel, charge-dependent Faddeev calculation is 8.00 MeV, which is 0.4 MeV above the predictions by local NN potentials. The increase in binding energy can be clearly attributed to the off-shell behavior of the non-local potential. Our result cuts in…

NN Scattering and Nuclear Uncertainties

Ab initio calculations in Nuclear physics for atomic nuclei require a specific knowledge of the interactions among their constituents, protons and neutrons. In particular, NN interactions can be

Investigation of the Deuteron Breakup on Proton Target in the Forward Angular Region at 130 MeV

A set of differential cross-section data of the 1H(d, pp)n breakup reaction at 130 MeV deuteron beam energy has been measured in the domain of very forward polar angles with the use of the Germanium

Exclusive Scattering off the Deuteron

Exclusive processes are a special class of processes giving insight into the inner structure of hadrons. In this thesis we consider two exclusive processes and compute their total cross sections as

Alternative Approaches to Dark Matter Puzzle

We study the dark matter problem with particular reference to a candidate particle within the Standard Model: the $H$ dibaryon. We consider as well a scenario which aims to connect the dark matter
