5 From baryonic to partonic degrees of freedom Hadrons are made by 3 valence quarks, but as the resolution increases, a reach and complicated partonic structure emerges How can hadrons be described in terms of quarks and gluons ? parton distribution functions low Q 2 high Q 2 the “spin crisis” - how the proton spin is made up ? - only ~2% of the proton mass is from bare quarks, the proton mass is generated dinamically  baryonic spectrum?

6 Parton model in DIS e’ = (E’, k’) e = (E, k)  p = (M, 0)   * = (,q)   W  W )Q,x(g 2 2 )Q,x(g 2 1 W  W  spin )Q,x(F 2 2 )Q,x(F 2 1 Deep Inelastic Scattering (DIS) W 2  M 2  x B > M 2 PDFs have a simple probabilistic interpretation: they encode the distribution of longitudinal momentum and polarization carried by quarks, antiquarks and gluons within a fast moving hadron. x is the fraction of quark momentum in the scaling regime only x-dependence Q 2 corrections can be computed

7 Unpolarized and Helicity PDF Unpolarized DF WELL KNOWN Helicity DF KNOWN

8 Orbital Angular Momentum SU(6) RCQM broken SU(6) curves: LO pQCD without/with OAM valence quarks: JLab

9 From collinear approximation to TMD Three PDFs in collinear approximation in DIS partons move collinearly with the nucleon no angular momentum Transverse Momentum Dependent parton distribution functions more complex dist. functions Access to the transverse momentum requires tagging of the leading quark in the final state

10 TMD distributions all functions depend on x and p T of the quark off-diagonal elements from interference between wave functions with different angular momentum 3D picture of quarks inside the nucleon in momentum space Parton Distribution Functions Parton Fragmentation Functions

11 Accessing TMDs pp → hX pp → e + e - X ep → ehX e + e - →h 1 h 2 X

12 Universality and TMDs Non-zero because of initial or final state interaction Sivers and Boer-Mulders change sign form SIDIS to Drell-Yan Crucial test for the gauge structure of QCD Sivers function: - unpolarized quarks in transversely polarized nucleon - correlation between quark transverse momentum and spin of the nucleon Boer-Mulders function: - transversely polarized quarks in unpolarized nucleon - correlation between quark transverse spin and nucleon momentum TMDs are universal objects - same functions in SIDIS, e+e-, DY,...

13 PTPT SIDIS Kinematical Plane and Observables Beam helicityTarget polarization U unpolarized L long.polarized T trans.polarized Extraction of the various terms from moments or asymmetries in   =  UU + S T  UT sin(  –  S ) + S T  LT cos(  –  S ) +....

14 SIDIS cross section 18 structure functions Structure functions decomposition - leading twist (parton model) - higher twist ~M/Q - only f 1 and g 1 survive P T integration

15 Observables in SIDIS Observables in SIDIS are the structure function F, not the partonTMD DFs and FFs. Unpolarized structure function: momentum conservation kin. factorDFFF 1.TMD  P T = z k T + p T 2.Need models to unfold DFs and FFs - gaussian ansatz for the transverse momentum dependence

16 TMD measurements at JLab B large acceptance spectrometer with good resolution lower luminosity  cm -2 s -1 asymmetry measurements over a broad kinematical range Hall A high resolution and small acceptance spectrometers high luminosity  cm -2 s -1 high polarization 3 He target (long. or transv.)  neutron Hall C high resolution and small acceptance spectrometers high luminosity  cm -2 s -1 high precision cross section measurements TMDs are studied at JLab through SIDIS scattering on nucleons (and nuclei) with different experimental equipments

17 CLAS results

18 Factorization at CLAS energies ep→e’   X In the valence region: multiplicity  FF Agreement with FF extraction from world data DSS (Q 2 =2.5GeV 2 ) DSS (Q 2 =25GeV 2 )

19 smooth dependence for all pions CLAS Double spin asymmetry Same analysis as in the collinear g  extraction but now focus on TMD Calculations using gaussian ansatz g / f transverse mom. distribution different for quarks with spin parallel or antiparallel to nucleon spin

20 leading term higher twist Target single spin asymmetry H 1  : Collins FF of transverse polarized quark in unpol. hadron h 1L  : correlation between transverse spin of quarks and longitudinal spin of nucleon  +  -  0 HT terms can be important at JLab

21 higher twist Beam single spin asymmetry Non-zero P T dependence dominant contribution from g  ? g  ~ HT correction of Sivers DF no x B dependence same size as  +

22 Hall A and C results

23 phenomenological fit no sea quark contribution (x>0.3) dominance of favoured FF u   + d   - gaussian k T shape larger k T width for d quark than for u in DF and FF  u and d quarks have different momentum distributions Unpol. cross section on H and D Similar shape for both pions Smaller slope for D than H data Hall C

24 Small (zero?) Collins Larger Sivers for  + than for  - Hall A Collins effect Sivers effect Opposite behaviour with respect to proton data HERMES proton data Transverse target SSA on neutron

25 Summary of experimental results the effect of the transverse momentum of quarks can be observed - TMD DFs and FFs are non-zero (Hermes+Compass+JLab+...) - how much does parton angular momentum contribute to the nucleon spin? first information on TMD DFs and FFs - non-zero Collins FF (SIDIS, e+e-) - non zero Sivers and Boer-Mulders DF (Hermes+Compass, JLab for the neutron) - first extraction of transversity (BELLE + HERMES) - possibility to access HT terms at JLab

26 Open issues strange quark distributions are basically unknown - inconsistency between extractions from DIS and SIDIS experiments - s distributions different from sbar? kaon puzzle - Sivers and Collins for K + twice as biggere as  + favoured FF u  + u  K + TMD extractions largely depend on the gaussian ansatz for the transverse momentum dependences - spin-dependent TMD are differences of probability, they don’t need to be positive analysis of exp. data is complicated due to convolution of DFs and FFs - multidimensional extraction of TMDs - new analysis techniques need to be implemented Need more data, especially on kaons
