Quark induced three body forces

Working Group 4: Short-Range Phenomena
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 260)


The effects of three body forces induced in the 3He, 4He systems by the requirements of quark antisymmetry are estimated in the context of a QCD-inspired non-relativistic potential model. The results are found to be sensitive to both the short distance structure of the spin independent quark potential and poorly known short distance features of the nuclear wavefunction, but suggest that quark induced effects are likely to play a non-trivial role in understanding binding discrepancies in the three nucleon system unless nucleon quark cores are anomalously small relative to the physical nucleon size.
