We present results for charge form factors, the point-proton, charge, and single-nucleon momentum distributions of 4 He and 16 O obtained within the self-consistent Green's function approach. The removal of the center-of-mass contribution for both nuclei has been performed by using a metropolis Monte Carlo algorithm in which the center-of-mass coordinate can be exactly subtracted from the optimal reference state wave function generated during the self-consistent Green's function calculations. The spectral functions of the same two nuclei have been used to compute inclusive electron-nucleus cross sections. The formalism adopted is based on the factorization of the spectral function and the nuclear transition matrix elements. This allows us to provide an accurate description of nuclear dynamics and to account for relativistic effects in the interaction vertex. When final-state interactions for the struck particle are accounted for, we find nice agreement between the data and the theory for the inclusive electron- 16 O cross section. The results lay the foundations for future applications of the self-consistent Green's function method, in both closed and open shell nuclei, to neutrino data analysis.
