Abstract. Deepinelastic scattering (DIS) from a tensor polarized deuteron is sensitive to possible nonnucleonic components of the deuteron wave function. To accurately estimate the size of the nucleonic contribution, finalstate interactions (FSIs) need to be accounted for in calculations. We outline a model that, based on the diffractive nature of the effective hadron–nucleon interaction, uses the generalized eikonal approximation to model the FSIs in the resonance region, taking into account the protonneutron component of the deuteron. The calculation uses a factorized model with a basis of three resonances with mass W < 2 GeV as the relevant set of effective...

The recent x> 1 (e,e’) and correlation experiments at momentum transfer Q2 ≥ 2 GeV2 confirm presence of shortrange correlations (SRC) in nuclei mostly build of nucleons. Recently we evaluated in a model independent way the dominant photon contribution to the nuclear structure. Taking into account this effect and using definition of x consistent with the exact kinematics of eA scattering (with exact sum rules) results in the significant reduction of RA(x,Q 2) = F2A(x,Q 2)/F2N (x,Q 2) ratio which explains ∼ 50 % of the EMC effect for x ≤ 0.55 where Fermi motion effects are small. The remaining...

We have developed an algorithm to imprint quantum fluctuations onto the initial transverse energy density profile according to a given twopoint covariance function. Using as an example MCKLN initial conditions with added fluctuations satisfying the covariance function derived in [1], we find that effects from subnucleonic gluon field fluctuations on the eccentricity harmonics n vary strongly with the gluonic correlation length controlled by the saturation momentum Qs. Varying Qs over the range probed in Au+Au collisions at RHIC, we find gluon fluctuation induced enhancements of the eccentricity coefficients ranging from 10 to 20 % in central collisions. 1. Eventbyevent fluctuations...

Abstract. In the past decade, coupledcluster theory has seen a renaissance in nuclear physics, with computations of neutronrich and mediummass nuclei. The method is efficient for nuclei with productstate references, and it describes many aspects of weakly bound and unbound nuclei. This report reviews the technical and conceptual developments of this method in nuclear physics, and the results of coupledcluster calculations for nucleonic matter, and for exotic isotopes of helium, oxygen, calcium, and some of their neighbors.

Abstract. We review recent developments in the use of renormalization group (RG) methods in lowenergy nuclear physics. These advances include enhanced RG technology, particularly for threenucleon forces, which greatly extends the reach and accuracy of microscopic calculations. We discuss new results for the nucleonic equation of state with applications to astrophysical systems such as neutron stars, new calculations of the structure and reactions of finite nuclei, and new explorations of correlations in nuclear systems.

Neutrinonuclear responses in the form of squares of nuclear matrix elements, NMEs, are crucial for studies of neutrinoinduced processes in nuclei. In this work we investigate magnetic hexadecapole (M4) NMEs in mediumheavy nuclei. The experimentally derived NMEs, MEXP(M4), deduced from observed M4 γ transition halflives are compared with the singlequasiparticle (QP) NMEs, MQP(M4), and the microscopic quasiparticlephonon model (MQPM) NMEs MMQPM(M4). The experimentally derived M4 NMEs are found to be reduced by a coefficient k≈0.29 with respect to MQP(M4) and by k≈0.33 with respect to MMQPM(M4). The M4 NMEs are reduced a little by the quasiparticlephonon correlations of the MQPM...

Gammaray densitometry or nucleonic gauges have been widely used in industries to improve the quality of products, optimize processes and save energy and materials. Compared with common timeconsuming and expensive chemical analyses, the proposed method is relatively fast and more reliable. Density measurement is normally based on the absorption of gamma radiation as it passes through the process material. The absorption which is proportional to the changes in material density indicates product density as the measuring path is held constant. In this study, a number of Monte Carlo simulations have been performed using the MCNP4C code to optimize the arrangement...

Λc+ hypernuclei are expected to have binding energies and other properties similar to those of strange hypernuclei in view of the similarity between the quark structures of the strange and charmed hyperons, namely Λ(uds) and Λc+(udc). One striking difference however occurs in their mesonic decays, as there is almost no Pauli blocking in the nucleonic decay of a charm hypernucleus because the finalstate nucleons leave the nucleus at high energies. The nuclear medium nevertheless affects the mesonic decays of charm hypernucleus because the nuclear mean fields modify the masses of the charm hyperon. In the present communication we present results...

The GEF (" GEneral description of Fission observables ") model code is documented. It describes the observables for spontaneous fission, neutroninduced fission and, more generally, for fission of a compound nucleus from any other entrance channel, with given excitation energy and angular momentum. The GEF model is applicable for a wide range of isotopes from Z = 80 to Z = 112 and beyond, up to excitation energies of about 100 MeV. The results of the GEF model are compared with fission barriers, fission probabilities, fissionfragment massand nuclide distributions, isomeric ratios, total kinetic energies, and promptneutron and promptgamma yields and...

“Spontaneous ” nuclear disintegration results from increase in the density of ether in the contemporary Universe. Red shift is indicative of increase in the density of ether in the peripheral regions of the Universe. The observable phenomenon of “spontaneous ” nuclear disintegration provides experimental evidence of the fact that increase in the density of ether in the contemporary Universe takes place in the entire Universe rather in its peripheral layers. It is common knowledge that atomic nuclei of a number of chemical elements are capable of being disintegrated by external influence into various fragments from single nucleons to different nucleonic...

The nucleonic component of the secondary cosmic rays is measured by the worldwide network of neutron monitors (NMs). In most cases, a NM station publishes the measured data in a real time basis in order to be available for instant use from the scientific community. The space weather centers and the online applications such as the ground level enhancement (GLE) alert make use of the online data and are highly dependent on their quality. However, the primary data in some cases are distorted due to unpredictable instrument variations. For this reason, the real time primary data processing of the measured...

Fluctuations are included in a chiral nucleonmeson model within the framework of the functional renormalization group. The model, with parameters fitted to reproduce the nuclear liquidgas phase transition, is used to study the phase diagram of QCD. We find good agreement with results from chiral effective field theory. Moreover, the results show a separation of the chemical freezeout line and chiral symmetry restoration at large baryon chemical potentials.

Major solar eruptions (coronal mass ejections) are accompanied by massive ejections of protons. When these charged particles head for the Earth through the interplanetary magnetic field with high flux and energy, a solar proton event (SPE) is recorded. Strong SPEs, in which energetic protons penetrate the atmosphere in large numbers are rare, but do have chemical effects (Crutzen, 1975; Jackman et al., 1990, 2001). They also have nucleonic effects by which they can almost instantaneously increase the atmospheric production of radionuclides, including ^{14}C (radiocarbon), but this has never been demonstrated. We show, using satellite observations and modeling, that the 2nd...

We investigate the occurrence of exotic structures in the outermost layers of neutron stars within the framework of a microscopic model describing the nucleonic dynamics through a timedependent mean field approach at around zero temperature. In this model starting from an initial crystalline lattice of nuclei at subnuclear densities the system evolves and selforganizes in various lowlying energy structures without assumption of final shapes. These structures are studied in terms of a density phase diagram. We investigate their sensitivity to the isotopic composition and to the symmetries of the lattice.

We studied the possible effects of atmospheric electric fields, generated in thunderstorms, on the cosmic ray intensity detected at the Earth’s surface by investigating the variations of the counting rates of the cosmicray nucleonic component, obtained from the neutron monitor installed in Mexico City, for thunderstorms during 1996 and 1997. These were years of minimum solar activity. We compare our experimental results with the general theory of cosmic ray meteorological effects by Dorman (1995).The observed intensity variation is about 0.2%. According to Dorman (1995), the effect should be between 0.27% and 0.81% on the counting rate of the neutron monitor...

The investigation of light nuclei with abinitio methods provides an optimal setting to probe our knowledge on nuclear forces, because the fewnucleon problem can be solved accurately. Nucleons interact not only in pairs but also via manybody forces. Theoretical eﬀorts need to be taken towards the identiﬁcation of nuclear observables sensitive to the less known manynucleon forces. Electromagnetic reactions can potentially provide useful information on this. We present results on photoabsorption and electron scattering oﬀ light nuclei, emphasizing the role of threebody forces and the comparison with experimental data. On the other hand, reactions induced by weak probes, like neutrino...

We study the stopping in heavyion induced reactions around the Fermi energy in central collisions. The stopping is minimal around the Fermi energy and corresponds to the crossover between the MeanField and the nucleonic regimes. This is attributed to the change in the energy dissipation going from 1body (MeanField) to 2body (nucleonnucleon collisions) dissipation. For this latter, a connection to inmedium transport properties of nuclear matter is proposed and comprehensive values of the nucleon mean free path and nucleonnucleon cross section are extracted.
