Many-body factorization and position–momentum equivalence of nuclear short-range correlations

Ab-initio Quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) calculations of nuclei from deuterium to 40Ca, obtained using four different phenomenological and local chiral nuclear potentials, are analyzed using the

The nuclear force that binds nucleons together is predominantly scalar, i.e., spin and isospin independent. The tensor, spin-isospin, and other components, are much weaker than the main scalar part.

Probing the core of the strong nuclear interaction

High-energy electron scattering measurements that can isolate pairs of nucleons in high-momentum configurations reveal a transition to spin-independent scalar forces at small separation distances, supporting the use of point-like nucleon models to describe dense nuclear systems.

New Results on Short-Range Correlations in Nuclei

Nuclear dynamics at short distances is one of the most fascinating topics of strong interaction physics. The physics of it is closely related to the understanding of the role of the QCD in generating

Short-range correlations and the nuclear EMC effect in deuterium and helium-3

The EMC effect in deuterium and helium-3 is studied using a convolution formalism that allows isolating the impact of high-momentum nucleons in short-ranged correlated (SRC) pairs. We assume that the

Exclusive studies on short range correlations in nuclei

Short Range Correlations (SRC) are brief fluctuations of high relative momentum nucleon pairs. Properties of SRC have important consequences for nuclear physics, high energy physics, atomic physics,

Isospin composition of the high-momentum fluctuations in nuclei from asymptotic momentum distributions

The variations of short-range correlations (SRC) across nuclei can be quantified in an approximately model-independent fashion in terms of the so-called SRC scaling factors. We provide predictions



Generalized nuclear contacts and momentum distributions

The general nuclear contact matrices are defined, taking into consideration all partial waves and finite-range interactions, extending Tan's work for the zero range model. The properties of these

Nucleon-nucleon correlations, short-lived excitations, and the quarks within

This article reviews our current understanding of how the internal quark structure of a nucleon bound in nuclei differs from that of a free nucleon. We focus on the interpretation of measurements of

Universality of nucleon-nucleon short-range correlations: the factorization property of the nuclear wave function, the relative and center-of-mass momentum distributions, and the nuclear contacts

The two-nucleon momentum distributions have been calculated for nuclei up to A=40 and various values of the relative and center-of-mass momenta and angle between them. For complex nuclei a
