Meson cloud model The nucleon was viewed as a bare nucleon plus a series of baryon-meson Fock states which result from the fluctuation of nucleon to baryon plus meson then the physical proton wave function is The nucleon was viewed as a bare nucleon plus a series of baryon-meson Fock states which result from the fluctuation of nucleon to baryon plus meson then the physical proton wave function is

7
So the quark distribution functions q(x) in the proton is the splitting function is

8
We use time-ordered perturbation theory in the infinite momentum frame to calculate this function

9
the quark distribution functions of Pi meson with the splitting function convolution

10
In a full calculation, we should include all kinds of mesons and baryons. While the probability of baryon-meson fluctuation should decrease with the invariant mass of the baryon-meson Fock state increasing, we can neglect the effects of Fock states with higher invariant mass In a full calculation, we should include all kinds of mesons and baryons. While the probability of baryon-meson fluctuation should decrease with the invariant mass of the baryon-meson Fock state increasing, we can neglect the effects of Fock states with higher invariant mass Pion, the lightest meson, plays the dominant role. Difference between u_bar and d_bar in virtual pion clouds can provide the large light flavor asymmetry in proton naturally Pion, the lightest meson, plays the dominant role.

17
the quark distribution functions of sigma meson We assume the valence and sea quark distribution of mesons related here are the same. We assume the valence and sea quark distribution of mesons related here are the same.

18
Adding sigma effects here Our calculations illustrate that the larger value of tends to give small values of the ratio and decreasing causes the maximum value of the ratio to be large and to appear at higher value of x Our calculations illustrate that the larger value of tends to give small values of the ratio and decreasing causes the maximum value of the ratio to be large and to appear at higher value of x
