Parton distributions in the chiral quark model: a continuum computationNov 16 2000Jan 19 2001We compute the parton distributions for the chiral quark model. We present a new technique for performing such computations based on Green functions. This approach avoids a discretization of the spectrum. It therefore does not need any smoothing procedures. ...
