Nuclear chromodynamics: Novel nuclear phenomena predicted by QCD

B.L.G. Bakker, C.R. Ji

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review


With the acceptance of QCD as the fundamental theory of strong interactions, one of the basic problems in the analysis of nuclear phenomena became how to consistently account for the effects of the underlying quark/gluon structure of nucleons and nuclei. Besides providing more detailed understanding of conventional nuclear physics, QCD may also point to novel phenomena accessible by new or upgraded nuclear experimental facilities. We review several interesting applications of QCD to nuclear physics. © 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
