The inclusive inelastic cross section of electrons and neutrinos from nuclear targets is described in terms of response functions. Their calculation poses major challenges to theory, since it requires knowledge of the whole excitation spectrum of the nucleus and inclusion of one- and two-body terms in the nuclear electroweak current. In the paper, the 4He and 12C response functions are calculated for the first time with quantum Monte Carlo methods. The results show that two-body currents generate excess transverse strength from threshold to the quasi-elastic to the dip region and beyond. These findings challenge the conventional picture of quasi-elastic inclusive scattering as being largely dominated by single-nucleon knockout processes.
