We present the first direct lattice-QCD calculation of the Bjorken-x dependence of the valence quark distribution of the pion. Using large-momentum effective theory (LaMET), we calculate the boosted pion state with long Wilson link operators. After implementing the one-loop matching and meson mass corrections, our result at m(pi) approximate to 310 MeV is in agreement with those extracted from ...
