Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

2 Scopus citations


We summarize basic theoretical ideas which let to the observation of the short-range correlations (SRC) in nuclei using hard probes and outline directions for probing quark-gluon structure of SRCs. Implications of the observations of color transparency for processes involving pions are reviewed. Open questions and directions for further studies of color transparency phenomena using hadronic projectiles are presented using as an example the PANDA detector at FAIR.
