Reaction Mechanism/Structure Sensitivity Studies of Cross Sections, Asymmetries, and Polarization in (p, p ) and (p, n)

  • A. Picklesimer


Inelastic scattering of nucleons from nuclei (in general we speak of both inelastic and charge exchange scattering as inelastic scattering) shows great promise as a source of theoretically valuable information. The recent advances in the range and quality of the available experimental cross section data and the promise of complementary asymmetry and polarization data soon to be forthcoming provides the experimental origin of this promise. In addition, the availability of data for other nuclear probes (the most important being the electron) provides an independent source of information through which the viability of proposed theoretical approaches can be checked. The final ingredient necessary is then careful theoretical analysis sufficient to obtain comparable accuracy for theory and experiment.
