  • We present a numerical lattice quantum chromodynamics calculation of isovector form factors and the first few moments of the isovector structure functions of the nucleon. The calculation employs two degenerate dynamical flavors of domain-wall fermions, resulting in good control of chiral symmetry breaking. Nonperturbative renormalization of the relevant quark currents is performed where necessary. The DBW2 gauge action is used to further improve the chiral behavior while maintaining a… CONTINUE READING
