Abstract : The (p, p alpha) and (alpha, 2 alpha) reactions furnish a useful tool for studying alphaparticle clustering within the nucleus. These reactions are discussed in terms of the momentum distribution function for the mass centre of the four nucleons to be knocked out as an alpha-particle and of the probability of finding the alpha-particle within the nucleus. The momentum distribution for the mass centre of the four nucleons within the nucleus is the same for both the reactions. The probability of finding the alpha-particle inside the nucleus in the (alpha, 2 alpha) reaction is compared with the corresponding probability in the (p, p alpha) reaction. (Author)
