Structure functions and quark models

Buck, Colin (1980) Structure functions and quark models. Doctoral thesis, Durham University.



The purpose of this research is the utilization of experimental structure function moments to test various models of the quark energy-momentum distribution inside the nucleon and to extend these models to discussion in a wider context: the contemporary interacting field theory of quarks and gluons (Quantum Chromodynamics - QCP); and static properties of the nucleon. A complete connection between a general quark energy-momentum distribution and the structure function moments is presented and a cure for the pathology of the lack of necessary kinematical restrictions in these models is extensively validated.
