Relativistic FewBody Hadronic Physics Calculations
Abstract
The goal of this research proposal was to use ``fewbody'' methods to understand the structure and reactions of systems of interacting hadrons (neutrons, protons, mesons, quarks) over a broad range of energy scales. Realistic mathematical models of fewhadron systems have the advantage that they are sufficiently simple that they can be solved with mathematically controlled errors. These systems are also simple enough that it is possible to perform complete accurate experimental measurements on these systems. Comparison between theory and experiment puts strong constraints on the structure of the models. Even though these systems are ``simple'', both the experiments and computations push the limits of technology. The important property of ``fewbody'' systems is that the ``cluster property'' implies that the interactions that appear in fewbody systems are identical to the interactions that appear in complicated manybody systems. Of particular interest are models that correctly describe physics at distance scales that are sensitive to the internal structure of the individual nucleons. The Heisenberg uncertainty principle implies that in order to be sensitive to physics on distance scales that are a fraction of the proton or neutron radius, a relativistic treatment of quantum mechanics is necessary.

The research supported by this grant involved 30 years of effort devoted to studying all aspects of interacting two and threebody systems. Realistic interactions were used to compute bound states of two and threenucleon, and two and threequark systems. Scattering observables for these systems were computed for a broad range of energies  from zero energy scattering to few GeV scattering, where experimental evidence of subnucleon degrees of freedom is beginning to appear. Benchmark calculations were produced, which when compared with calculations of other groups provided an essential check on these complicated calculations. In addition to computing bound state properties and scattering cross section, we also computed electron scattering cross sections in fewnucleon and fewquark systems, which are sensitive to the electric currents in these systems. We produced the definitive review on article on relativistic quantum mechanics, which and been used by many groups. In addition we developed and tested many computational techniques are used by other groups. Many of these techniques have applications in other areas of physics. The research benefited by collaborations with physicists from many different institutions and countries. It also involved working with seventeen undergraduate and graduate students.},

Theoretical studies in mediumenergy nuclear and hadronic physics. [Indiana Univ. Nuclear Theory Center and Department of Physics]
A proposal for theoretical nuclear physics research is made for the period April 1, 1993 through March 31, 1996. Research is proposed in the following areas: relativistic manybody theory of nuclei and nuclear matter, quasifree electroweak scattering and strange quarks in nuclei, dynamical effects in (e,e[prime]p) scattering at large momentum transfer, investigating the nucleon's parton sea with polarized leptoproduction, physics of ultrarelativistic nucleus[endash]nucleus collisions, QCD sum rules and hadronic properties, nonrelativistic models of nuclear reactions, and spin and color correlations in a quarkexchange model of nuclear matter.

Hadronic effects in twobody B decays
In these lectures the authors discuss the impact of soft hadronic physics on predictions for B decays. Unfortunately their tools for calculating these effects are limited; even after the use of the best available tools the resulting theoretical uncertainties are difficult to delimit, and can obscure tests for the presence of beyondStandardModel physics. The first lecture reviews what tools are available, the second reviews in more detail two examples of how these tools can be used.
