Abstract
We present a detailed study of a continuum random-phase approximation approach to quasielastic electron-nucleus and neutrino-nucleus scattering. We compare the (e, e') cross-section predictions with electron scattering data for the nuclear targets C-12, O-16, and Ca-40, in the kinematic region where quasielastic scattering is expected to dominate. We examine the longitudinal and transverse contributions to C-12(e, e') and compare them with the available data. We find an overall satisfactory description of the (e, e') data. Further, we study the C-12(nu(mu), mu(-)) cross sections relevant for accelerator-based neutrino-oscillation experiments. We pay special attention to low-energy excitations which can account for non-negligible contributions in measurements, and require a beyond-Fermi-gas formalism.
