Ab Initio Study of Electroweak Responses of 4He
In this contribution, we discuss the electroweak responses of 4He based on a full four-body calculation. The wave function of the ground state is obtained accurately using an explicitly correlated basis. Four-body final states are expressed in a superposition of many basis functions including configurations which have 3+1 and 2+1+1 cluster partitions of four-nucleon system explicitly. The continuum is properly treated by taking the two approaches: one is the complex scaling method and the other is the microscopic R-matrix method. The calculated photoabsorption cross sections agree up to the rest energy of a pion. The spin–dipole strength function is also presented and its relationship between the spectrum of 4He is discussed.
