A general approach based on the principle of approximate self-similarity, current algebra, and vector dominance is developed for studying inelastic lepton-hadron interactions. Since the form factors for deep inelastic electromagnetic and weak interactions are self-similar, the number of independent variables in the asymptotic region can be reduced by one. Combined with current algebra, this circumstance leads to special sum rules which can in principle be used to solve the fundamental question of the structure of the electromagnetic or weak hadron current. It is shown that the mechanism for the violation of self-similarity or invariance is related to violation of conformal symmetry up to the Poincaré symmetry group. The formation of a muon pair in a deep inelastic proton-proton collision, p + p → μ+ + μ + hadrons, is discussed in detail.
