Scaling violations in quasielastic electron scattering

M. N. Butler, S. E. Koonin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We study the response function of nuclear matter using Brueckner-Goldstone perturbation theory through two hole-lines. In the quasielastic region accessible to present experiments, we find that the approach to y-scaling with increasing momentum transfer differs significantly from that of the commonly assumed Fermi gas with no final state interactions and is in reasonable accord with the data.
