Some Recent Developments in the Determination of Parton Distributions

  • J. F. Owens
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 197)


Recent data relevant for determining parton distributions are discussed. Particular attention is paid to the question of how to improve our knowledge of the gluon distribution. The role of photon-jet and photon-hadron correlation data is discussed in conjunction with a new technique for performing next-to-leading order two-particle inclusive calculations.
