On the role of diquarks in deep inelastic structure functions

  • F. E. Close

It has been suggested that almost all theQ2 dependence of nucleon structure functions can be unberstood in terms of quark (scaling) + diquark (∼1/Q2) contributions. We confront the simplest version of such a model with data from neutrino (highQ2) as well as electron (lowQ2) experiments and find no overall consistent agreement.
