The absorptive P-wave pion-nucleus optical potential Academic Article uri icon


  • We derive the absorptive part of the P-wave pion-nucleus optical potential from a two-body model for the absorption mechanism which involves rescattering of a pion and {variant}-meson through a 33 resonant state. The model gives an adequate explanation for the fundamental +d pp reaction cross section and leads to values for the optical potential parameter which are in fair agreement with those obtained from pionic atom level widths. 1978.
