Nucleon emission via electromagnetic excitation in relativistic nucleus-nucleus collisions: Reanalysis of the Weizsäcker-Williams method

Phys. Rev. C 40, 2621 – Published 1 December 1989
John W. Norbury


Previous analyses of the comparison of Weizsäcker-Williams theory to experiment for nucleon emission via electromagnetic excitations in nucleus-nucleus collisions have not been definitive because of different assumptions concerning the value of the minimum impact parameter. This situation is corrected by providing criteria that allow one to make definitive statements concerning agreement or disagreement between Weizsäscker-Williams theory and experiment.
