We have found essential QCD diagrams for the leading particle production in the high energy processes. The high momentum component of the deuteron (nucleus) wave function is estimated in terms of perturbative QCD. Reasonable agreement of the formulae obtained with the observed cross section of the deep inelastic reaction e + D → e + X at x 〉 1, and the observed momentum dependence of the high energy reactions h + A → fast backward, p, π + X indicate that the nuclear core and cumulative particle production are actually QCD phenomena. The crucial importance of the deep inelastic 1A scattering at x 〉 1 for the investigation of the short range nuclear structure is explained.
