"Revisiting the concept of relativistic charge distribution"

Presented by Cédric Lorcé, CPHT - Ecole Polytechnique

Abstract: We review and revisit the concept of charge distribution in the relativistic context. Adopting a phase-space perspective allows us to discuss the momentum dependence of these distributions and to connect the well-known pictures in both the Breit frame and the infinite-momentum frame. In particular, we explain why the center of the neutron charge distribution appears to be negative in the infinite-momentum frame and positive in the Breit frame.
