Short-range correlations and momentum distributions in nuclei

Thomas Neff (GSI Darmstadt)

Short-range correlations in light nuclei are investigated using realistic interactions. Unitary transformations in the similarity renormalization group (SRG) approach are used to obtain effective interactions which allow to obtain converged wave functions within the no-core shell model. For a consistent description the SRG transformation has to be applied also to observables. This is especially important for observables that are sensitive to short-range or high-momentum physics. A prime example are two-body densities that reflect the short-range correlations and relative momentum distributions.
