Final state interactions and the extraction of neutron single spin asymmetries from semi-inclusive deep-inelastic scattering by a transversely polarized $^{3}\mathrm{He}$ target


Author(s): A. Del Dotto, L. P. Kaptari, E. Pace, G. Salmè, and S. Scopetta

The semi-inclusive deep-inelastic electron scattering off transversely polarized $^{3}\mathrm{He}$, i.e., the process $e+\stackrel{⃗}{^{3}\mathrm{He}}→{e}^{′}+h+X$, with $h$ being a detected fast hadron, is studied beyond the plane-wave impulse approximation.

Nonradial oscillation modes of compact stars with a crust


Author(s): Cesar Vásquez Flores, Zack B. Hall, II, and Prashanth Jaikumar

Oscillation modes of isolated compact stars can, in principle, be a fingerprint of the equation of state (EoS) of dense matter. We study the non-radial high-frequency $l=2$ spheroidal modes of neutron stars and strange quark stars, adopting a two-component model (core and crust) for these two types ...

Global $\mathrm{Λ}$ polarization in heavy-ion collisions from a transport model


Author(s): Hui Li, Long-Gang Pang, Qun Wang, and Xiao-Liang Xia

Off-central relativistic heavy ion collisions impart very large orbital angular momenta onto the quark-gluon plasma, creating a strong vortex in the initial hot fluid and appearing eventually, via spin-vorticity coupling, as particle polarization. From the vorticity field given by a multi-phase transport model the authors compute the global polarization of Λ baryons which is in agreement with experimental data. This suggests that the spin of a hadron could provide information on quark-gluon plasma flow.

Compton scattering from $^{4}\mathrm{He}$ at 61 MeV


Author(s): M. H. Sikora et al.

Compton scattering, where the electromagnetic field of a real photon induces radiation multipoles by displacing charges and currents inside the nucleon, is an important probe of both the structure of light nuclei and the nucleon polarizabilities. This paper presents the first extensive and precise measurements of elastic Compton scattering on 4He. These results should allow precision comparisons with new calculations expected from both lattice gauge and effective field theories.

Charge-exchange dipole excitations in neutron-rich nuclei: $−1ℏ{ω}_{0}$, anti-analog pygmy and anti-analog giant resonances


Author(s): Kenichi Yoshida

The occurrence of low-lying charge-exchange non-spin-flip dipole modes below the giant resonance in neutron-rich nuclei is predicted on the basis of nuclear density functional theory. The ground and excited states are described within the framework of the self-consistent Hartree–Fock–Bogoliubov theo...
