Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 86)


The present status of the theory of exchange current effects as seen in electron scattering off nuclei is reviewed. The most important pion exchange mechanisms and their experimental consequences are discussed in some detail.
