We report the results of a new global QCD analysis, which includes deep-inelastic 𝑒/πœ‡ scattering data off proton and deuterium, as well as Drell-Yan lepton pair production in proton-proton and proton-deuterium collisions and π‘Š Β± /𝑍 boson production data from 𝑝𝑝 and 𝑝 Β― 𝑝 collisions at the LHC and Tevatron. Nuclear effects in the deuteron are treated in terms of a nuclear convolution approach with bound off-shell nucleons within a weak binding approximation. The off-shell correction is…

Light-Front Holography Model of the EMC Effect

A new two-component model of the EMC effect based on Light-Front Holographic QCD (LFHQCD) is presented. The model suggests the EMC effect is the result of the nuclear potential breaking SU(6) symmetry.…

TLDR
A unified description of nuclear deep-inelastic scattering over the whole region 0[lt][ital x][lt]1 of the Bjorken variable is presented, based on a relativistically covariant formalism which uses analytical properties of quark correlators.
