Threshold Pion Photoproduction and the Nuclear Structure

  • C. Tzara
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 45)


Instead of a standard review of the electro and photoproduction of pion, I have decided to present a selection of data and to discuss some of the problems encountered at this occasion, and which I feel of particular interest. It is thus a rather personal view of the field that will emerge, and many aspects will be missing. For instance, I deliberately ignore the “elementary particle” approach to these processes, and adhere completely to the microscopic analysis, the reason being that I want to know how the nucleus is made of “elementary particles”. Let me recall at this point the conceptual framework in which the following discussion takes place.


Form Factor Radiative Capture Impulse Approximation Magnetic Form Factor Pion Photoproduction
