Shadowing in deuterium and the small x limit of {F _{2}^{n}}/{F _{2}^{p}} and F_{2}^{p}
Abstract
We discuss the updated NMC determination of F^{n}_{2}/ F^{p}_{2} and F^{p}_{2} F^{n}_{2}. Shadowing effects in deuterium make the structure functions determined by the NMC sensibly different from the true ones in the low x region. We show that the departure of {F _{2}^{n}}/{F _{2}^{p}} and F_{2}^{p} F^{n}_{2} from the Regge expectations at small x observed by the NMC likely disappears if one takes into account the shadowing corrections.
