Electron-Deuteron Scattering in a Three-Dimensional Relativistic Framework
I discuss a three-dimensional relativistic formalism that includes the effects of negative-energy states, approximate boosts of the two-body system, and current conservation. I also display the electromagnetic form factors of the deuteron predicted by this approach—both in impulse approximation and with a ρπγ current included—for the range of Q2 explored in JLab experiments.
