Nucleon-Nucleon Correlations and Inclusive Electron Scattering off Few-Nucleon Systems at x > 1

Part of the Few-Body Systems book series (FEWBODY, volume 8)


Inclusive electron scattering off few-nucleon systems is investigated at x > 1 and high momentum transfer, including the contributions from quasielastic and deep inelastic scattering processes. It is shown that at x > 1 the inclusive cross section is dominated by the process of virtual photon absorption on a pair of correlated nucleons both in case of quasielastic and deep inelastic scattering events. The sensitivity of the nuclear response to the effects arising from the possible presence of multiquark cluster configurations at short inter-nucleon separations as well as from possible medium-dependent modifications of the nucleon structure function, is illustrated.
