Cross sections have been measured for the quasieleastic Li6(e,ep) reaction in the missing-energy region beyond the t+d threshold, which is domianated by the (3/2+ resonance. The data are compared with distorted-wave impulse-approximation calculations, which involve nuclear overlap functions derived from a cluster-distortion model extended to the continuum. The measured recoil-momentum dependence of the (3/2+ resonance can only be reproduced if an anomalous longitudinal-transverse ratio is taken into account.
