Abstract

Abstract Using simple assumptions it is shown that the average transverse momentum of partons is determined by their structure functions. The x-dependence obtained this way agrees well with the experimental data. The size is controlled by the invariant mass of the nucleon core and the behaviour of the structure functions near x = 1. We obtain a lower limit for the intrinsic contribution to 〈 k ⊥〉 μμ of ∼ 400 MeV.
