    • Abstract

       

      The quark spin content of the nucleons is subjected to constraints implied by sum rules due to global approximate chiral symmetries and perturbativeqcd effects. The model, so obtained, has a large polarisation residing in the flavour singlet constituents of hadron. Predictions for the expected longitudinal and transverse spin asymmetries in deep inelastic lepton-nucleon scattering are made on the basis of the standard form of the electromagnetic and charged weak currents.
