Abstract

One expects a similarity of the energy dependence of the differenceσtot(γ*p)−σtot(γ*n) for virtual (deep inelastic scatteringQ2m2) and real (Q2=0) photons. Previous analysis of μD structure functions with allowence for nuclear shadowing (NS) in the deuteron has led to conclusion thatσtot(γ*p)−σtot(γ*n)<0 atx<0.015. The early evidence from the real photoproduction data wasσtot(γp)−σtot(σn)<0. We critically reexamine determinations of the differenceσtot(γp)−σtot(σn), using more accurate calculations of NS correction toσtot(γD), and discuss a possibility ofσtot(γn)<σtot(σp) at moderately high energies.
