Abstract

The inclusive production of D*(2010) mesons in deep-inelastic ep scattering is measured in the kinematic region of photon virtuality 100 <Q**2 <1000 GeV**2 and inelasticity 0.02 <y <0.7. Single and double differential cross sections for inclusive D* meson production are measured in the visible range defined by |eta(D*)| <1.5 and p_T(D*) > 1.5 GeV. The data were collected by the H1 experiment during the period from 2004 to 2007 and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 351 pb**{-1}. The charm contribution, F_2**{ccbar}, to the proton structure function F2 is determined. The measurements are compared with QCD predictions.
