Title: Structure Functions at Low Q^2: Target Mass Corrections

Abstract

We discuss recent developments in the study of structure functions at low Q^2, focusing in particular on the issue of target mass corrections (TMC) to nucleon structure functions. We summarize the standard TMC implementation, and contrast this with a new formulation which has the correct kinematic threshold behavior at finite Q^2 in the x -> 1 limit.
