These give credibility to the DGLAP approach as a proper one to study the parton distribution functions. However, apart from the numerical solution, there is the alternative approach of dglap equation analytically these equations at small and there are many analytical solutions available in the literature [ 7 — 10 ], and the present authors have also pursued such an approach with reasonable phenomenological success [ 11 — 15 ].


The analytical approach, though not possible to carry out to higher order in space due to the complex nature of the splitting functions involved, is intuitive one in the sense that the solutions obtained allow us to visualize their dependence on the variables. In this paper, we study some analytical dglap equation of the nonsinglet structure functions that is, the flavour dependent contributions to the structure functions considering the corresponding DGLAP evolution equations.

As is well known, the nonsinglet structure functions, in DIS plays an important role for precise dglap equation of the quark densities; it is comparatively easy because it is not coupled to the singlet and the gluon and can be regarded as a starting ground for the analysis of the other structure functions.

We convert the LO DGLAP equation which is an integrodifferential equation into a partial differential equation in the two variables by a Taylor series expansion valid to be at low. The resulting equation is then solved analytically by two different methods: Besides that, the levels of approximation were also different.

The aim of the paper is to make a detailed comparison of the predictions of the two methods with two different levels of approximations. The Monte Carlo algorithms which we construct are such as to make the wall clock time by computer in a proper time.

The numerical patterns which we develop in this paper can also be used for other numerical investigations. The organization of this paper is as following. The theoretical framework is based on using Laguerre polynomial expansions. The required functions and subroutines are also introduced there.

Comparison of Analytical Solution of DGLAP Equations for at Small by Two Methods

A short overview of the theoretical framework In high energy physics, dglap equation parton densities at the Q2 scale can be obtained, employing the DGLAP evolution equations.

These equations can be used to describe Bjorken dglap equation in deep inelastic scattering DIS. One of them is to use the Laguerre polynomial expansion which we employ to get the solution of non-singlet and singlet sectors of parton densities.

In the QCD theory there are no fundamental parameters with the dimension of mass except for the quark masses. In reality scale dglap equation is broken in QCD by quantum corrections: Scaling is broken, but the scaling violations are only logarithmic and computable.


The simplest hard processes are those where no hadrons are present in the initial state and the final state is totally inclusive that is, the sum over all possible hadronic final states is taken.

The constant b is the first coefficient of the QCD beta function. Deep inelastic scattering Dglap equation the next level of complication one has hard processes with one and only one hadron in the initial dglap equation, like in deep inelastic scattering DIS: For DIS shown in Fig.

Advances in High Energy Physics

Dglap equation processes have played and still play a very important role for our understanding of QCD and of nucleon structure. In the '60's the demise of hadrons from the status of fundamental particles to that of bound states of constituent quarks was the breakthrough that made possible the construction of a renormalisable field theory for strong interactions.


In fact, the presence of an unlimited number of hadron species, many of them with large spin values, presented an obvious dead-end for a manageable field theory. The evidence for constituent quarks emerged clearly from the systematics of hadron spectroscopy. But, at the beginning, confinement that forbids the observation of free quarks was a clear obstacle towards the acceptance of quarks as real constituents and not just as fictitious entities describing some purely mathematical pattern.

The set of DIS processes actually provides us with a rich laboratory dglap equation theory and experiment.
