Parton Content of Real and Virtual Photons


The virtuality of the target photon, P , has to be much smaller than the virtuality Q of the probe photon such that the neglected terms of order O(P /Q) are small. In the following, we are interested in the photon structure function F γ(P ) 2 (x,Q ) which enters the deep inelastic electron photon cross section in exactly the same way as is well known from deep inelastic electron proton scattering
