Title Improved QCD sum rule estimates of the higher twist contributions to polarised and unpolarised nucleon structure functions
Contributors
Abstract We re-examine the estimates of the higher twist contributions to the integral of g1, the polarised structure function of the nucleon, based on QCD sum rules. By including corrections both to the perturbative contribution and to the low energy contribution we find that the matrix elements of the relevant operators are more stable to variations of the Borel parameter M2, allowing for a meaningful estimate of the matrix elements. We find that these matrix elements are typically twice as large as previous estimates. However, inserting these new estimates into the recently corrected expressions for the first moments of g1 leads to corrections too small to affect the phenomenological analysis. For the unpolarised case the higher twist corrections to the GLS and Bjorken sum rules are substantial and bring the estimate of ΛQCD from the former into good agreement with that obtained from the Q2 dependence of deep inelastic data.
