Abstract

Abstract We study the relation between the parton model and light cone analyses for highly inelastic leptonic processes. Results are displayed which follow from scaling laws in general, independently of specific parton model predictions. We conclude that the assumptions of the light cone analysis of inelastic electron scattering are supported by the parton model. However, the parton model matrix element for massive muon pair production is not light-cone dominated, nor does it have the same light cone singularity as inelastic electron scattering.
