Parton distributions in hadrons and the cross sections for lepton pair production

Glennys R. Farrar

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    A number of constraints, several new, are exploited to obtain realistic quark parton distributions for baryons and mesons. These distributions are used to make detailed predictions for NN or πN → l+l- + anything, potentially providing a quantitative test of the quark parton model. Differential cross sections for a single lepton observed in the final state are also given.
