(p.258) 7 Structure Functions And Parton Distributions
Quantum Chromodynamics




Oxford University Press

This chapter presents the determination of structure functions and parton distributions from deep inelastic lepton-nucleon scattering, both for the case of charged lepton-nucleon and the case of neutrino-nucleon scattering. The focus is on the results obtained by the HERA experiments. The direct measurements as well as the indirect extraction of the gluon density from scaling violations are discussed. Information obtained from sum rules and from hadron-hadron scattering is briefly summarized, followed by a discussion of global QCD fits of the parton densities based on all available information.

Keywords:   lepton-nucleon scattering, HERA experiments, quark densities, gluon densities, scaling violations, sum rules, global QCD fits
