The change in mass of a nucleon, arising from its interactions with other nucleons inside the target, results in velocity-dependent terms in the Schrodinger equation that describes nucleon scattering. It has recently been suggested in a number of publications that introducing and fitting velocity-dependent terms improves the quality of the description of nucleon scattering data for various nuclei. The present paper discusses velocity-dependent optical potentials in a context of a three-body… Expand

Perey-effect in continuum-discretized coupled-channel description of (d, p) reactions
The Perey effect in two-body channels of (d, p) reactions has been known for a long time. It arises when the nonlocal two-body deuteron-target and/or proton-target problem is approximated by a localExpand
Theory of deuteron stripping and pick-up reactions for nuclear structure studies
Deuteron stripping and pick-up experiments - (d; p) and (p; d) - have been used for a long time to study the structure of nuclei. Today these experiments are often carried out in inverse kinematicsExpand


Weak sensitivity of three-body ( d,p ) reactions to np force models
Adiabatic distorted-wave approximation (ADWA) study of three-body $(d,p)$ transfer reactions [G.W. Bailey, N.K. Timofeyuk, and J.A. Tostevin, Phys. Rev. Lett. 117, 162502 (2016)] reported strongExpand
Nonlocality in the adiabatic model of A(d, p)B reactions
In a previous publication [Phys. Rev. Lett. 110, 112501 (2013)] we have proposed a generalization of the adiabatic model of (d,p) reactions that allows the nonlocality of the nucleon opticalExpand
Implications for (d,p) reaction theory from nonlocal dispersive optical model analysis of Ca40(d,p)Ca41
The nonlocal dispersive optical model (NLDOM) nucleon potentials are used for the first time in the adiabatic analysis of a (d,p) reaction to generate distorted waves both in the entrance and exitExpand
Nonlocal interactions in the (d,p) surrogate method for (n,γ) reactions
Single-neutron transfer reactions populating states in the continuum are interesting both for structure and astrophysics. In their description often global optical potentials are used for theExpand
Explicit inclusion of nonlocality in (d,p) transfer reactions
Traditionally, nucleon-nucleus optical potentials are made local for convenience. In recent work we studied the effects of including nonlocal interactions explicitly in the final state for (d,p)Expand
An approximate three-body theory of deuteron stripping
Abstract A treatment of deuteron stripping is developed in which the three-body effects associated with deuteron break-up in the nuclear field are included explicitly. The essence of the method isExpand
Reduced sensitivity of the (d,p) cross sections to the deuteron model beyond the adiabatic approximation
It has recently been reported [Phys. Rev. Lett. 117, 162502 (2016)] that (d, p) cross sections can be very sensitive to the n-p interactions used in the adiabatic treatment of deuteron breakup withExpand
Velocity dependent nuclear forces and their effect in nuclear matter
Abstract The object of this paper is to investigate whether it is possible to replace the hard core in current nucleon-nucleon potentials by a non-singular but velocity-dependent potential. This isExpand
Novel source of nonlocality in the optical model
In this work we fit neutron-{sup 12}C elastic scattering angular distributions in the energy range 12 to 20 MeV, by adding a velocity-dependent term to the optical potential. This term introduces aExpand
A non-local potential model for the scattering of neutrons by nuclei
Abstract An energy independent non-local optical potential for the elastic scattering of neutrons from nuclei is proposed and the wave-equation solved numerically in its full integro-differentialExpand
