We study the asymmetries of inclusive π[sup +], π[sup 0] and π[sup -] production in the interaction of a polarized with a non polarized proton, in the frame of a two component model. Our model is consistent with the experimental data available.

    Considerable progress has been made in our knowledge of the spin distribution within the proton. The recently measured limits on polarized gluons in the proton suggest polarized gluons contribute very modestly to the proton spin. We will show that a modern, relativistic and chirally symmetric...
