Title: Study of 4He(e, e'p)3H through the (e, e'p) reaction at Q2 = 2(GeV/c)2 and xb = 1.24

The structure and dynamics of 4He can be studied through 4He(e,e'p) coincidence measurements at high momentum transfers. Using the Hall A high resolution spectrometers and a cryogenic 4He target, the SRC (short range correlation) and E08009 experiments held at Jefferson Lab in April 2011 measured the entire range of missing momentum from 0.0 GeV/c to 0.9 GeV/c. The observables of interest in this experiment (E08009) are the missing energy and missing momenta for producing the triton (3H) ground state. This thesis concentrates on missing momentum values of 153 and 353 MeV/c. Cross sections are calculated and compared to theory.
