Summary, in English

A semiclassical model is presented for the way the energy of a fast quark is transformed into observable hadrons. It reproduces the features of 1 + 1 dimensional QED (the Schwinger model) concerning a flat rapidity distribution in the central region. In particular the model predicts that the probability to find a meson containing a leading quark is independent of the Feynman scaling variable. Also a quark jet interpretation of low PT jets in hadronic interactions is discussed shortly.
