$O(α_s)$ Heavy Flavor Corrections to Charged Current Deep-Inelastic Scattering in Mellin SpaceApr 18 2011We provide a fast and precise Mellin-space implementation of the $O(\alpha_s)$ heavy flavor Wilson coefficients for charged current deep inelastic scattering processes. They are of importance for the extraction of the strange quark distribution in neutrino-nucleon ... More
