    • Abstract

       

      Using a Thomas-Fermi type picture of the nucleon as a dense system of quarks and antiquarks, we give a rationale for the ‘dipole’ nature, scaling and other characteristics of the nucleon electromagnetic form factors. Similar considerations are then given for the electromagnetic structure of the pion.
