Short-range correlation in nuclei (it takes two to dance)
Speaker: Eliezer Pisasetzky, School of Physics and Astronomy, Tel Aviv University, Israel
Abstract: In this talk I will present new studies of correlations between nucleons in atomic nuclei that lead to an emergent universality of strongly interacting systems from dilute atomic gases to neutron stars. I will discuss their impact on our understanding of the properties of neutron stars, the core of the strong nuclear interaction, factorization properties of nuclear wave function, and the internal quark-gluon structure of free and bound nucleons. Strongly-interacting many-body systems are ubiquitous in nature. Understanding the relation between the macroscopic properties of such systems and the microscopic particle correlations driving them is an outstanding challenge with wide ranging implications.
