Measurement of the longitudinal structure function and the small x gluon density of the proton

Abstract:

At HERA energies the small x region (x≲10 -2) can be explored at Q 2 values large enough that leading twist QCD calculations are valid. We show how measurement of the longitudinal structure function, F L(x,Q 2), can lead to accurate measurement of the gluon structure function at such small x values. Experimental systematic errors are discussed fully and requirements for the measurement outlined. We...
