**Structure Functions**

by A. De Roeck, R.S. Thorne

**Publisher**: arXiv 2011**Number of pages**: 72

**Description**:

Structure functions are a measure of the partonic structure of hadrons, which is important for any process which involves colliding hadrons. This text gives an overview on present structure function and related data, and on the most recent techniques used to extract parton distribution functions to describe the structure of the proton.
