We have measured the spin-dependent structure function $g_1~p$ in inclusive deep-inelastic scattering of polarized muons off polarized protons, in the kinematic range $0.003 < x < 0.7$ and $1 GeV~2 < Q~2 < 60 GeV~2$. A next-to-leading order QCD analysis is used to evolve the measured $g_1~p(x,Q~2)$ to a fixed $Q~2_0$. The first moment of $g_1~p$ at $Q~2_0 = 10 GeV~2$ is $\Gamma~p = 0.136\pm 0.013(stat.) \pm 0.009(syst.)\pm 0.005(evol.)$. This result is below the prediction of the Ellis-Jaffe… 

The g2p Experiment: A Measurement of the Proton's Spin Structure Functions

The E08-027 (g2p) experiment measured the spin structure functions of the proton at Jefferson Laboratory in Newport News, Va. Longitudinally polarized electrons were scattered from a transversely and

Bjorken polarized sum rule and infrared-safe QCD couplings

Experimental data obtained for the polarized Bjorken sum rule (BSR) $$\Gamma _1^{p-n}(Q^2)$$Γ1p-n(Q2) are fitted by using predictions derived within a truncated operator product expansion (OPE)

Measurement of inclusive spin structure functions of the deuteron

We report the results of a new measurement of spin structure functions of the deuteron in the region of moderate momentum transfer [Q2=0.27–1.3(GeV/c)2] and final hadronic state mass in the nucleon

Spin asymmetries A1 and structure functions g1 of the proton and the deuteron from polarized high energy muon scattering

We present the final results of the spin asymmetries A(1) and the spin structure functions g(1) of the proton and the deuteron in the kinematic range 0.0008 < x < 0.7 and 0.2 < Q(2) < 100 GeV2. For

Nucleon spin structure functions at NNLO in the presence of target mass corrections and higher twist effects

We extract polarized parton distribution functions (PPDFs), referred to as "KTA17," together with the highly correlated strong coupling $\alpha_s$ from recent and up-to-date $g_1$ and $g_2$ polarized

Measurement of the virtual-photon asymmetry A2 and the spin-structure function g2 of the proton

A measurement of the virtual-photon asymmetry A2(x,Q2) and of the spin-structure function g2(x,Q2) of the proton are presented for the kinematic range 0.004<x<0.9 and 0.18 GeV2<Q2<20 GeV2. The data

Deep inelastic scattering of polarized electrons by polarized 3He and the study of the neutron spin structure.

The neutron longitudinal and transverse asymmetries $A^n_1$ and $A^n_2$ have been extracted from deep inelastic scattering of polarized electrons by a polarized $^3$He target at incident energies of

Sea Quark or Anomalous Gluon Interpretation for $g_1^p(x)$ ?

Contrary to what has been often claimed in the literature, we clarify that the hard photon-gluon cross section $\gg_{\rm hard}(x)$ in polarized deep inelastic scattering calculated in the
