Abstract

This paper reviews the consequences of multi-quark correlations in nuclei which arise through the particular cluster decomposition of the nuclear ground state specified by the quark cluster model (QCM). The critical radius of a three quark cluster, R c , controls the formation probability of larger clusters. The value of R c = 0.50 fm is fixed by fits to deep inelastic lepton nucleus scattering data. The QCM prediction for the ratio of nuclear structure functions in the x > 1 domain is discussed as a critical test of the model. We also present an extended discussion of the application of the QCM to the nuclear Drell-Yan process.
