Abstract

Spin-dependent lepton-nucleon scattering data have been used to investigate the validity of the concept of quark-hadron duality for the spin asymmetry A<sub>1</sub>. Longitudinally polarized positrons were scattered off a longitudinally polarized hydrogen target for values of Q<sup>2</sup> between 1.2 and 12 GeV<sup>2</sup> and values of W<sup>2</sup> between 1 and 4 GeV/<sup>2</sup>. The average double-spin asymmetry in the nucleon resonance region is found to agree with that measured in deep-inelastic scattering at the same values of the Bjorken scaling variable x. This finding implies that the description of A<sub>1</sub> in terms of quark degrees of freedom is valid also in the nucleon resonance region for values of Q<sup>2</sup> above 1.6 GeV<sup>2</sup>.
