    • Abstract


      We derive an approximate formula for the quark mass in ξ-formalism. Using the QCD-based form of structure function, we analyse the SLAC-MIT data to estimate the experimentally allowed ranges of quark mass. The possible variation of our results with QCD cut-off parameter, gluon distribution, hard intrinsic charm component of the proton wavefunction and the higher twist effects are also discussed.
