The Lead Jet Pseudorapidity Distribution of Direct Photon Events in Proton-Antiproton Collisions at 1.8 Tev
The lead jet pseudorapidity distribution in direct photon events probes the kinematic region of Bjorken x between 0.015 and 0.15 and discriminates among parton distributions. Direct photon production directly probes the gluon distribution through the leading order Quantum Chromodynamics Compton process. The data are from pp collisions at a total center -of-mass energy of 1.8 TeV recorded with the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF) in the 1992-1993 run.
