A Comprehensive Overview of Photon-Proton Scattering and QCD Methodology





Abstract Views: 98

The AdS/CFT correspondence is used as a helpful reference in the light front hyperbolic geometry technique, which solves this issue by mapping a confining gauge theory parameterized on the light front to a greater anti-de Sitter space. Three different interaction processes exist Direct or angular the target photon quark and the photon pair directly. When a lepton-antilepton pair is produced, only quantum electrodynamics (QED) is used; however, when a quark-antiquark pair is produced, both QED and perturbative quantum chromodynamics (QCD) are used. A deep-inelastic electron-photon scattering experiment was used to study the photon structure function, which describes the photon inherent quark composition: Single resolved: the desired spectroscopy quark combination creates the vector meson, one of the constituents of relationships to the investigating photon. The main focus of the current study was on photon-proton and QCD methodology. The main theoretical conclusion resulting from the work carried out can be used in the development of the conceptual concept of further researchers and this work also will be a guideline for future researchers.
