Single and twonucleon momentum distributions for local chiral interactions
Abstract
Here, we present quantum Monte Carlo calculations of the single and twonucleon momentum distributions in selected nuclei for A≤16. We employ local chiral interactions at nexttonexttoleading order. We find good agreement at low momentum with the singlenucleon momentum distributions derived for phenomenological potentials. The same agreement is found for the integrated twonucleon momentum distributions at low relative momentum q and low centerofmass momentum Q. We provide results for the twonucleon momentum distributions as a function of both q and Q. The large ratio of pn to pp pairs around q = 2 fm^{–1} for backtoback (Q = 0) pairs is confirmed up to ^{16}O, and results are compatible with those extracted from available experimental data.
