Parametrising the proton structure function

  • 14 Accesses

Summary

We show that simple parametrisations at smallx of the proton structure function work so well in limited regions of the (x,Q 2) plane because they are approximately “self-consistent” solutions of the QCD evolution equation. For a class of them, we predict theirQ 2 dependence and compare the result with experimental data.
