Deep Inelastic Physics with H1
Hadron collider, photoproduction, and deep inelastic scattering data are giving us new information on the parton structure functions, while recent data from HERA on the rise of the structure function, F2 , at low x are stimulating new theoretical understanding.
QCD: Challenges for the Future
The strong rise in the proton structure function, F2 (x, Q2 ) at small x and large Q2 , which indicates a strong rise in the γ ∗p total cross section, underscores the importance of understanding the role of diffraction at low x.
QCD: Challenges for the Future
The study of structure functions at low x is particularly interesting since current data show a rise in gp 1 at low x.
QCD: Challenges for the Future
The dramatic rise of the F2 with decreasing x at low x observed in the HERA data must eventually lead to saturation of the parton densities.
