Relativistic calculation of structure functions b_{1,2}(x) of the deuteron
Abstract
The structure functions b^{D}_{1,2} (x) of the deuteron are studied within the covariant approach. It is shown that the usual nonrelativistic convolution model results in an incorrect behavior of these structure functions at small x and violates the exact sum rules. Realistic calculations are carried out with the BetheSalpeter amplitude of the deuteron and compared with the nonrelativistic results.
