Isoscalar and Isovector Electromagnetic Properties of Few Nucleon Systems

  • J. Martino
Part of the Few-Body Systems book series (FEWBODY, volume 2)


The 2- and 3-nucleon systems play a very important role in the understanding of the fundamental properties of the nucleon-nucleon interaction. Since for these systems the Schrödinger equation can be exactly solved, they are privileged tools to study the limits of the purely nucleonic description of nuclei. In fact, the recent experimental results can indeed only be explained if non-nucleonic degrees of freedom are explicitely taken into account, such as the Meson Exchange Currents (MEC) contributions in the “conventional” meson-nucleon picture of nuclei.
