Hypernuclear Experiments, Low-Energy Antiproton Physics and Quark Structure of Nuclei

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 139)


It was a pleasant surprise to find out that the structure functions of nucleons get changed in nuclei, and thus we obtained an excellent new method to study the nuclear structure at Q2 » 1 GeV2. At these Q2 the physics of the nuclear probes is believed to be understood quite well. Understanding the nuclear structure functions may eventually lead to the formulation of the nuclear structure in terms of the quarks.
