Abstract
The isoscalar structure functions xF3 and F2 are measured as functions of x averaged over all Q2 permissible for the range of 6 to 28GeV of incident neutrino (anti-neutrino) energy at the IHEP-JINR neutrino detector. The QCD analysis of the xF3 structure function yields $\Lambda_{\overline{\mathrm {MS}}}^{(4)} = (411 \pm 200)$MeV under the assumption of the validity of QCD in the region of low Q2. The corresponding value of the strong interaction constant $\alpha_{\mathrm {S}} (M_Z) = 0.123^{+0.010}_{-0.013}$agrees with the recent result of the CCFR collaboration and with the combined LEP/SLC result.
