No dia 25 de Setembro de 2023, faremos a migração do Repositório Institucional para a versão 7.6 do sistema DSpace. Por este motivo, o Repositório Institucional ficará indisponível neste dia. Contamos com a compreensão de todos.
Quark-model descriptions of the nucleon-nucleon interaction contain two main ingredients, a quark-exchange mechanism for the short-range repulsion and meson exchanges for the medium- and long-range parts of the interaction. We point out the special role played by higher partial waves, and in particular the 1F3, as a very sensitive probe for the meson-exchange part employed in these interaction models. In particular, we show that the presently available models fail to provide a reasonable description of higher partial waves and indicate the reasons for this shortcoming.
