Title: Comment on “Single-inclusive jet production in electron–nucleon collisions through next-to-next-to-leading order in perturbative QCD” [Phys. Lett. B 763 (2016) 52–59]

Abstract

In the cross section for single-inclusive jet production in electron nucleon collisions, the distribution of a quark in an electron appears at next-to-next-to-leading order. The numerical calculations in Ref. [1] were carried out using a perturbative approximation for the distribution of a quark in an electron. We point out that that distribution receives nonperturbative QCD contributions that invalidate the perturbative approximation. Here, those nonperturbative effects enter into cross sections for hard-scattering processes through resolved-electron contributions and can be taken into account by determining the distribution of a quark in an electron phenomenologically.
