y scaling in electron-nucleus scattering


Data on inclusive electron scattering from A = 4, 12, 27, 56, 197 nuclei at large momentum transfer are presented and analyzed in terms of y scaling. We find that the data do scale for y < 0 (x > 1), and we study the convergence of the scaling function with the momentum transfer Q^2 and A.
