We reportmicroscopic calculations of the equation of state of symmetric nuclear matter and the nucleon-nucleus optical potential in the Brueckner-Hartree-Fock approach. The calculations use several internucleon (NN)potentials, such as the Hamada-Johnston, Urbana 14, Argonne v14, Argonne v18, Reid93, and Nijm II along with and without two types of three-body forces (TBFs): the Urbana IX model and the phenomenological density-dependent three-nucleon interaction model of Lagris and Pandharipande [Nucl. Phys. A 359, 349 (1981)] and Friedman and Pandharipande [Nucl. Phys. A 361, 502 (1981)]. The inclusion of TBFs helps to reproduce the saturation properties for symmetric nuclear matter rather well as expected. The proton-nucleus optical potential has been calculated by folding the calculated reaction matrices (with and without three-body forces) over the nucleon density distributions obtained from the relativistic mean-field theory. The results show that the inclusion of TBFs reduces the strength of the central part of the optical potential in the nuclear interior and affects the calculated spin-orbit potential only marginally. As a test of the calculated potential, we have analyzed proton differential elastic scattering, analyzing power, and spin-rotation data from 40Ca and 208Pb at 65 and 200 MeV. It is observed that the inclusion of TBFs improves the agreement with the experiment especially for the polarization data.
