A covariant formulation for polarized electron (muon) scattering on spin-zero and polarized spin-1/2 targets

  • T. Garavaglia


A unified and covariant formulation is described for the analysis of polarized electron (muon) scattering from spin-zero and polarized spin-1/2 targets. The formulation is valid for deep inelastic as well as elastic scattering, and it can be used to describe polarization effects which depend upon the lepton mass.

Ковариантная формулировка для рассеяния поляриэованных злектронов (мюонов) на мищенях со спином нуль и на поляриэованных мищенях со спином 1/2


Описывается единая ковариантная формулировка для аналиэа рассеяния поляриэованных злектронов (мюонов) на мищенях со спином нуль и на поляриэованных мищенях со спином 1/2. Предложенная формулировка справедлива для глубоко неупругого, а также для упругого рассеяний. Эта формулировка может быть испольэована для описания поляриэационных зффектов, которые эависят от массы лептонов.


Si descrive una formulazione covariante unificata per l’analis idello scattering dell’elettrone (muone) polarizzato da bersagli a spin zero e polarizzati a spin 1/2. La formulazione è valida sia per lo scattering profondo inelastico che elastico, e può essere usata per descrivere effetti di polarizzazione che dipendono dalla massa del leptone.
