A Nucleon in the Nucleus: What is it ?

  • Bertrand Desplanques
Part of the Few-Body Systems book series (FEWBODY, volume 5)


The model dependence of the concept of “nucleon in nuclei” is emphasized, starting from the example of the ground state of nuclear matter. How to reconcile this model dependence with the necessary model independence of predictions for observables is discussed. As an illustration, the deuteron structure function, A(q2), calculated with the Paris and full Bonn (energy-dependent) potentials is considered.
