Abstract

The gluon momentum density xg(x, Q(2)) of the proton was extracted at Q(2) = 20 GeV2 for small values of x between 4 x 10(-4) and 10(-2) from the scaling violations of the proton structure function F-2 measured recently by ZEUS in deep inelastic neutral current ep scattering at HERA. The extraction was performed in two ways. Firstly, using a global NLO fit to the ZEUS data on F-2 at low x constrained by measurements from NMC at larger x; and secondly using published approximate methods for the solution of the GLAP QCD evolution equations. Consistent results are obtained. A substantial increase of the gluon density is found at small x in comparison with the NMC result obtained at larger values of x.
