Pion Photoproduction on the Nucleon and Light Nuclei

Part of the Few-Body Systems book series (FEWBODY, volume 7)


Photo- and electroproduction of mesons are well suited tools to investigate the structure of hadrons. With the advent of electron accelerators with high current and large duty-factor, new classes of experiments including polarization degrees of freedom have become possible. Such investigations range from threshold production of mesons to detailed studies of nucleon resonances. In addition, there is the large field of meson production and propagation in the nuclear medium.
