@article{Segarra2020NeutronVS, title={Neutron Valence Structure from Nuclear Deep Inelastic Scattering.}, author={Efrain Segarra and Axel Schmidt and Tyler Kutz and Douglas W.

Mechanisms of spin-flavor SU(6) symmetry breaking in quantum chromodynamics (QCD) are studied via an extraction of the free neutron structure function from a global analysis of deep inelastic scattering (DIS) data on the proton and on nuclei from A=2 (deuterium) to 208 (lead). Modification of the structure function of nucleons bound in atomic nuclei (known as the EMC effect) are consistently accounted for within the framework of a universal modification of nucleons in short-range correlated…
