Meson Theoretical Models of Three-Nucleon Forces

  • Sidney A. Coon
Part of the Few-Body Systems book series (FEWBODY, volume 1)


The analogy between photon-exchange and meson-exchange many-body forces is examined with the aid of dispersion theory and used to draw conclusions about the role of baryon resonances in meson-exchange three-nucleon potentials. The importance of low-energy theorems and soft pion theorems in the three-nucleon potential is stressed.
