This web page presents two-nucleon momentum distributions calculated for various light nuclei in the range A=3-12 as discussed in Wiringa, Schiavilla, Pieper, and Carlson: Phys. Rev. C 89, 024305 (2014) (or arXiv:1309.3794). Corresponding single-nucleon momentum distributions can be found here. These are from variational Monte Carlo calculations (VMC) using the Argonne v18 two-nucleon and Urbana X three-nucleon potentials (AV18+UX). (Urbana X is intermediate between the Urbana IX and Illinois-7 models; it has the form of UIX supplemented with a two-pion S-wave piece, while the strengths of its terms are taken from the IL7 model. It does NOT have the three-pion-ring term of IL7.)

These VMC wave functions are the starting trial functions for a
number of recent Green's function Monte Carlo (GFMC) calculations:

Brida, *et al.*, Phys. Rev. C **84**, 024319 (2011);

McCutchan, *et al.*, Phys. Rev. C **86**, 024315 (2012);

Pastore, *et al.*, Phys. Rev. C **87**, 035503 (2013);

Datar, *et al.*, Phys. Rev. Lett. **111**, 062502 (2013).

More details of the wave function construction can be found in

Wiringa, Phys. Rev. C **43**, 1585 (1991) for A=3,4;

Pudliner, *et al.*, Phys. Rev. C **56**, 1720 (1997) for A=6,7;

Wiringa, *et al.*, Phys. Rev. C **62**, 014001 (2000) for A=8;

Pieper, *et al.*, Phys. Rev. C **70**, 044310 (2002) for A=9,10.

Some of the results are distributions for relative pair momenta
q = (k_{1}-k_{2})/2 projected into total pair spin
S=0 or 1 and isospin T=0 or 1.
Other results are generated as a function of both q and total pair momentum
Q = (k_{1}+k_{2}) projected into pp, np, and nn pairs..
The momentum calculations are based on the method discussed in:

Schiavilla *et al.*, Nucl. Phys. **A449**, 219 (1986);

with algorithmic improvements given in:

Schiavilla *et al.*, Phys. Rev. Lett. **98**, 132501 (2007).

where N_{ST} is the total number of pairs with total spin S=0 or 1
and T=0 or 1.
