A QCD analysis of HERA and fixed target structure function data

Theoretical physics


The parton momentum density distributions of the proton are determined from a next-to-leading order QCD analysis of structure functions measured at HERA and by fixed target experiments. Also included are data on the difference of the up and down anti-quark distributions. The uncertainties in the parton densities, structure functions and related cross sections are estimated from the experimental errors and those on the input parameters of the fit. Several QCD predictions based on the parton densities obtained from this analysis are calculated and compared to data.
