The short-range and tensor correlations associated to realistic nucleon-nucleon interactions induce a population of high-momentum components in the nuclear many-body wave function. We study the impact of the population of such components on bulk observables associated to isospin asymmetric matter. We show how this population affects the kinetic part of the symmetry energy, which is substantially reduced with respect to the non-interacting case.

    According to the quark model, the masses of η and η′ mesons should be almost equal. However, the empirical values of these masses differ by more than a factor of two. Similarly, though they have almost the same quark-antiquark content, the total cross section for the creation of...
