    • Abstract

       

      We attempt a general phenomenological analysis of the neutral weak current in the inclusive neutrino reactions using the parton model as a tool. From the recently reported data on these processes we determine the strengthH of the neutral-current interaction as well as the amount of theVA interference. We find (H/G)2=0·54±0·06 whereG is the Fermi coupling constant and theVA interference contribution turns out to be 33±23%. We also discuss the comparison of the data with various models for the neutral hadronic current.
