It would be welcome if the emergence of the Compton wavelength, a more intuitive grasp of electron spin, and the apparent pointlikeness of the electron in high-energy scattering experiments could be understood, possibly in extensions of the model incorporating quantum effects from the outset and doing justice to L.
Our approach relies on particles from high-energy scattering processes having pseudorapidity distribution more peaked at [eta] = 0, as well as higher values of [p.sub.T], on average, than those originating from low-energy strong interactions.
