Abstract

Abstract We use inclusive electron scattering to study the short-range aspects of nuclear wave functions. The spectral functions P(k, E) of nuclear matter and finite nuclei are calculated using correlated basis function theory and the local density approximation. The cross sections for inclusive electron-nucleus scattering are obtained using the factorized propagator approximation in which the recoil-nucleon final state interaction is treated using correlated Glauber theory. Comparison to ( e, e′) data at large momentum transfer allows detailed studies of P(k, E) at large momenta, NN correlations and colour transparency.
