      emc effect; change of confinement scale in nuclei

    • Abstract


      We study a model in which the confinement scale of quarks in a nucleus of massA changes asA1/3. This explains theA dependence of structure functions (emc effect) as seen in muon, electron and antineutrino deep inelastic scattering from nuclear targets. We also investigate a prediction of this model—anA dependence of theqcd scale parameter A.
