Asymmetries in Deep Inelastic Scattering

  title={Asymmetries in Deep Inelastic Scattering},
  author={Erwin Gabathuler},
We review the existing data on asymmetries in deep inelastic muon scattering involving changes in the lepton and quark helicities. The status of the present E.M.C. experiment on spin structure functions is discussed together with future developments. The process of Deep Inelastic Scattering using electron, muon and neutrino probes has been very successful in developing our present understanding of the role of quarks and gluons in strong interactions. This knowledge has been obtained mainly from… CONTINUE READING
