Correlations in nuclear systems: from electron-scattering to neutron stars

Herbert Muether, Institut fuer Theoretische Physik, Tuebingen, Germany
6008 Conference Room

Strong short-range and tensor components of realistic nucleon-nucleon (NN) interactions lead to correlations in nuclear wave functions beyond the simple shell-model picture. These correlations are characteristic for the model of the NN interaction and can be observed in nucleon knock-out reactions like (e,e'p) or (e,e'pn). These correlations are also relevant for the structure and properties of neutron stars. A self-consistent Green function approach has been developed to describe these features.
