Abstract
Measurements of the proton structure function F-2 for 0.6 < Q(2) < 17 GeV2 and 1.2 x 10(-5) < x < 1.9 x 10(-3) from ZEUS 1995 shifted vertex data are presented. From ZEUS F-2 data the slopes dF(2)/dln Q(2) at fixed x and dlnF (2)/dln(1/x) for x < 0.01 at fixed Q(2) are derived. For the latter, E665 d ata are also used. The transition region in Q(2) is explored using the simp lest non-perturbative models and NLO QCD. The data at very low Q(2) less th an or equal to 0.65 GeV2 are described successfully by a combination of gen eralised vector meson dominance and Regge theory. From a NLO QCD fit to ZEU S data the gluon density in the proton is extracted in the range 3 x 10(-5) < x < 0.7. Data from NMC and BCDMS constrain the fit at large x. Assuming the NLO QCD description to be valid down to Q(2) similar to 1 GeV2, it is f ound that the q (q) over bar sea distribution is still rising at small x an d the lowest Q(2) values whereas the gluon distribution is strongly suppres sed.
