Title: Quark structure functions of mesons, fragmentation functions, higher-twist effects in QCD, deep inelastic scattering, and the Drell-Yan process. [Constituent binding in hadron wave function cross section azimuthal angular dependence]

Abstract

Inclusion of specific effects associated with constituent binding in hadronic wave functions is shown to lead to important nonscaling, nonfactorizing 1/Q/sup 2/ contributions to cross sections for semi-inclusive deep-inelastic scattering, the Drell-Yan process, and other hard scattering reactions. These 1/Q/sup 2/ higher-twist terms are predicted to be dominant in well defined kinematic regions such as large x and/or large z. They provide angular distributions typical of longitudinally polarized virtual photons and W's, including sin/sup 2/theta terms in meson induced Drell-Yan processes and in e/sup +/e/sup -/ ..-->.. ..pi..X, as well as unusual (1-y) terms in deep-inelastic scattering. Calculations are also presented of the quark structure functions of the pion q/sub ..pi../(x,Q/sup 2/) and for the quark to pion fragmentation function D/sub ..pi..(z,Q/sup 2/). Predictions are made for the azimuthal angle dependence of the cross sections for ..pi..N ..-->.. ..mu.. anti ..mu..X and lN ..-->.. l'..pi..X.
