Valence- and sea-quark distributions in the pion


Journal Article

We apply the quark-recombination model to the low-pT + and - production data in -p interactions at 200 GeV/c. We find that the known quark distributions in the proton can account for the pion production in the backward hemisphere. We then obtain information on the valence- and sea-quark distributions in the pion using the forward-hemisphere pion production data. © 1979 The American Physical Society.
