Boundary between Hadron and Quark/Gluon Structure of Nuclei


We show that the boundary between quark-dominated and hadron-dominated regions of nuclear structure may be blurred by multi-nucleon quark clusters arising from color percolation. Recent experiments supporting partial percolation in cold nuclei and full percolation in hot/dense nuclear matter include: deep inelastic lepton-nucleus scattering, relativistic heavy-ion collisions and the binding energy in 5HeΛ^5 He_{\Lambda}.Comment: 10 pages, 4 figures; added references; improved figures; fixed a typo (wrong sign in Eqn 6); Fixed typos in Equation 2; updated reference
