The Photon Structure Function

  • Ch. Berger
Part of the The Subnuclear Series book series (SUS, volume 20)


High-energy electron-positron storage rings offer the opportunity to measure the inclusive reaction
$${e^ + }{e^ - } \to {e^ + }{e^ - } + X,$$
where X is a leptonic or hadronic final state. This reaction is usually interpreted as lepton or hadron production by two virtual photons which are radiated from the incoming leptons (e+e → e+e γ*γ* → e+e X). (See Fig.1 for the basic diagram and an explanation of the symbols used in the text.)
