We investigate structure functions in the 2-dimensional (asymptotically free) non-linear O(n) σ-models using the non-perturbative S-matrix bootstrap program. In particular, the exact small (Bjorken) x behavior is derived. Structure functions in the special case of the n = 3 model are accurately computed over the whole x range for -q2/M2 < 105, and some moments are compared with results from renormalized perturbation theory. Some results concerning the structure functions in the 1/n approximation are also presented.
