Spin structure of the forward nucleon charge-exchange reaction n + p --> p + n and the deuteron charge-exchange breakup.

Valery V. Lyuboshitz & Vladimir L. Lyuboshitz
The structure of the nucleon charge-exchange process \,$n + p \rightarrow p + n$ \,is investigated basing on the isotopic invariance of the nucleon-nucleon scattering. Using the operator of permutation of the spin projections of the neutron and proton, the connection between the spin matrices, describing the amplitude of the nucleon charge-exchange process at zero angle and the amplitude of the neutron elastic scattering on the proton in the ``backward" direction, has been obtained.
