    • n Hera queen of the Olympian gods in ancient Greek mythology; sister and wife of Zeus remembered for her jealously of the many mortal women Zeus fell in love with; identified with Roman Juno

    • n Hera In Greek myth, the greatest feminine divinity of Olympus, queen of heaven, wife and sister of Zeus, and inferior in power to him alone. She was the type of virtuous womanhood, and of the wife and mother. In art she is represented as a majestic woman, fully clad in flowing draperies, characteristically with the stephane or crown on her brow, and bearing a long scepter. By the Romans Hera was early identified with their Juno, originally a distinct divinity; and the Latin name is now commonly given to the Greek goddess.

With Aphrodite, hush distress,
And, in their several gifts distinct,

Dart out and push and take;
Chide her—a trembling thing she stands,
And like two leaves they shake.

For a particular example, we used HERA kinematics and studied the energy behavior of the cross section within the range W = 50–200 GeV.

To account for the charge of the beam proton, the charge of the first subsystem is increased by one unit. A more detailed discussion of the implementation of the model can be found in a HERA-B note describing the MINT model 1 .

Experimental Consequences of Regular Charge-Monopole Electrodynamics
We describe a module with significantly improved performance over previous manifestations for which the technique is well proved by us, e.g. experiment E865 at Brookhaven [1,4], and has been adopted by others, e.g. the PHENIX RHIC detector, the HERA-B detector at DESY, and the LHCb detector at CERN .

We also add to the data set some recently published measurements of neutral current and charged current deep-inelastic cross sections by the ZEUS experiment based on HERA-II data [26, 27].
Precision determination of electroweak parameters and the strange content of the proton from neutrino deep-inelastic scattering
The quality of the fit to the new HERA II data is comparable to that to the BCDMS data, and somewhat worse than that of the fit to other HERA data.
Precision determination of electroweak parameters and the strange content of the proton from neutrino deep-inelastic scattering
These new data mostly probe the large x region, like BCDMS and unlike other HERA data (see Fig. 1), and are generally rather precise, also like BCDMS and unlike other HERA data (see Tab. 1 and Tab. 1 of Ref. ).
Precision determination of electroweak parameters and the strange content of the proton from neutrino deep-inelastic scattering
This is a consequence of the fact that dimuon data have little redundancy, and are sensitive to strangeness, to which other data are essentially insensitive; while all other data have a very large redundancy, especially low-x HERA data which depend mainly on the quark singlet and gluon.
Precision determination of electroweak parameters and the strange content of the proton from neutrino deep-inelastic scattering
For instance, as in Ref., in the determination of the NNPDF1.2 PDF set we have imposed positivity of the structure function FL at low x and Q2, which helps in reducing the uncertainty of the gluon distribution at the edge of the HERA data region.
