Proton structure and its flavor decomposition

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Abstract In spite of the tremendous progress achieved in establishing the validity of the Standard Model of weak, electromagnetic and strong interactions, there are still many mysteries. In particular, the structure of the proton, whose mass is in 981], cannot be calculated from first principles and has to be investigated experimentally. In this lecture, the present status of our knowledge on the parton decomposition of the proton is shortly summarized.
