Elastic nucleon-deuteron scattering and breakup with chiral forces
Institute of Physics, Jagiellonian University, PL-30348 Kraków
Published online: 11 May 2016
Results on three-nucleon (3N) elastic scattering and breakup below the pion production threshold are discussed. The large discrepancies found between a theory based on numerical solutions of 3N Faddeev equations with standard nucleon-nucleon (NN) potentials only and data point to the need for three-nucleon forces (3NF’s). This notion is supported by the fact that another possible reason for the discrepancies in elastic nucleon-deuteron (Nd) scattering, relativistic effects, turned out to be small. Results for a new generation of chiral NN forces (up to N4LO) together with theoretical truncation errors are shown. They support conclusions obtained with standard NN potentials
