Nucleons in nuclei in the selfconsistent soliton model to QCD

  • M. H. Wendel
  • E. R. Hilf


In the scalar Soliton model of QCD the gluon field operators are replaced by a classical selfcoupling scalar field with solitontype interaction. The quark wave-functions and the soliton field are calculated for the free nucleon as compared to a nucleon inside nuclear matter approximated by averaged boundary conditions to simulate the surrounding nucleons. The mass of the nucleon as well as its mean effective radius are given in terms of the nuclear-matter density and the model parameters. For large quark-soliton coupling the EMC-effect is seen, and then at high densities a plasma of free quarks and free localized solitons is the lowest energy solution.
