We study the Drell-Yan process $\pi N \rightarrow \mu^+ \mu^- X$ at large $x_F$ using perturbative QCD. A higher-twist mechanism suggested by Berger and Brodsky is known to qualitatively explain the observed $x_F$ dependence of the muon angular distribution, but the predicted large $x_F$ behavior differs quantitatively from observations. We have repeated the model calculation taking into account the effects of nonasymptotic kinematics. At fixed-target energies we find important correctionsdoi:10.1016/0370-2693(94)90178-3 fatcat:2zn7uorqpbaxvkyahdf6qkxsru
