The transparency of nuclei to nucleons and pions in a relativistic Glauber approximation


We present a selection of results obtained within the context of a relativistic eikonal model. First, results of relativistic Glauber calculations for the nuclear transparency extracted from photon-induced pion production are presented. Second, computed differential cross-sections for the 12 C(p, 2p) are compared to data.
