The pion structure function is studied in the Nambu and Jona-Lasinio (NJL) model. We calculate the forward scattering amplitude of a virtual photon from a pion target in the Bjorken limit, and obtain valence quark distributions of the pion at the low energy hadronic scale, where the NJL model is supposed to work. The calculated distribution functions are evolved to the experimental momentum scale using the Altarelli-Parisi equation. The resulting distributions are in a reasonable agreement withdoi:10.1016/0370-2693(93)91302-4 fatcat:avzqlkpkf5fhrphhubk3qhp7oa
