Determine the structure function

  1. Feb 10, 2015 #1
    hi
    how can I determine structure function ## F_2## in ##R=QCD##, with having ##F_2## in ##R=0## in special ##x## and ##Q## ?
    thanks

    Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    The structure function can be directly derived from the cross section if you have a an approximate idea of the value of R. I think it has a Q2 dependance to be exact but it can be approximated as about [0.06 +/- 6]/Q2 There are various papers on how to get these structure functions from other sources: http://arxiv.org/pdf/0805.3116v2.pdf and then there is R.G. Roberts "The Structure of the Proton" - pretty much THE handbook for information about any kinds of functions and properties relating to sub components of the proton.
