A screened BFKL interpretation of F2 in the exceedingly small x limit

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In this letter we show that the behaviour of F2, at very small xB, agrees with the behaviour expected from the BFKL evolution equation, when screening corrections are included. We obtain a description which is consistent with the data, however, we require the screening corrections to be relatively large (about a quarter of the total DIS cross section). The relation between the screening corrections and the diffractive DIS cross section is discussed.
