Nuclear Physics on the Light Front

Preprint English OPEN
Miller, Gerald A. (1999)

High energy scattering experiments involving nuclei are typically analyzed in terms of light front variables. The desire to provide realistic, relativistic wave functions expressed in terms of these variables led me to try to use light front dynamics to compute nuclear wave functions. The progress is summarized here.
