Nuclear Structure Functions from Constituent Quark Model

Mr. Shahin Atashbar from IPM, Semnan University

 Abstract : We have used the notion of the constituent quark model of nucleon, where a constituent quark carries its own internal structure, and applied it to determine nuclear structure functions ratios. It is found that the description of experimental data require the inclusion of strong shadowing effect for x < 0.01. Using the idea of vector meson dominance model and other ingredients this effect is calculated in the context of the constituent quark model. It is rather striking that the constituent quark model, used here, gives a good account of the data for a wide range of atomic mass number from A = 4 to A = 204.
