The Jefferson Lab Hall A experiment E01015 measured the differential cross sections of the C-12(e,e'pd) reaction with low yields for kinematics of omega=0.865 GeV, Q^2=2 (GeV/c)^2, Bjorken x=1.2 at three kinematic settings of C-12(e,e'p) missing momentum of 300, 400 and 500 MeV/c. The main objective of the experiment was to measure the C-12(e,e'p) cross section and the cross section ratios of C-12(e,e'pp) and C-12(e,e'pn) to investigate Short Range Correlations. The C-12(e,e'pd) reaction was investigated to find out what its magnitude of cross section. The very low yields and differential cross sections of C-12(e,e'pd) reaction measured at the three different kinematic settings suggests that the contribution of many of the different reaction mechanisms, including three nucleon forces, may be suppressed at the kinematics of this experiment.
