Some aspects of nuclear deep inelastic scattering
Abstract
Nuclear deep inelastic scattering is considered in the framework of a model in which the current operator explicitly satisfies Poincaré invariance and current conservation. The results considerably differ from the standard ones at small values of the Bjorken variable x. In particular there is in our model no way to extract the neutron structure functions from the proton and deuteron data at x ≲ 0.01 and we predict that the behavior of the deuteron structure functions at low x and large momentum transfer considerably differs from the behavior of the nucleon structure functions at such conditions. We also argue that for heavier nuclei the effect of the final state interaction is important even in the Bjorken limit.
