Deep Inelastic Lepton — Nucleon Scattering

Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 66)


During the past 12 years, experiments on inelastic scattering of leptons (e, μ, v) by nucleons have provided vital evidence both for the parton (i.e. quark/gluon) substructure of hadrons, and for the nature of the strong interactions between the quark constituents. The studies have been of two broad types: the analysis of the “structure functions” describing the distribution of the quarks in the hadron (nucleon): and the analysis of the “fragmentation functions” describing the distributions in energy, angle and transverse momentum of the secondary hadrons in the quarks.
