Abstract

We explain that due to the presence of the short-range nucleon correlations in nuclei the theoretical pattern of Bjorken scaling violation at x > 0.7 is expected to be simpler here than in lepton-nucleon scattering. Consequently, lepton-nucleus scattering is better suited for the accurate determination of ΛQCD if nuclear effects are properly accounted for. On the contrary if they are ignored (as it is often done at present) ΛQCD is considerably underestimated.
