Inclusive nucleon spectra from deuteron breakup reactions on Li7 are analyzed in terms of the continuum discretized coupled channels theory for the elastic breakup process and the Glauber model for the nucleon stripping process. Both theoretical models use the same phenomenological nucleon optical potential of Li7 and have no other free parameters. The calculations reproduce well a prominent bump observed around half the incident energy in experimental inclusive spectra of 40-MeV (d,xn) and 100-MeV (d,xp) reactions at forward angles. The analysis shows that the stripping process is more important than the elastic breakup process in deuteron breakup reactions on Li7.
