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 low Q2 high Q2 - only ~2% of the proton mass is from bare quarks, the proton mass is generated dinamically  baryonic spectrum? the “spin crisis” - how the proton spin is made up ? How can hadrons be described in terms of quarks and gluons ? parton distribution functions

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

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

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 Parton Distribution Functions
Parton Fragmentation Functions all functions depend on x and pT 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

11 Accessing TMDs ep → ehX e+e- →h1 h2 X pp → e+e-X pp → hX

12 Universality and TMDs TMDs are universal objects
- same functions in SIDIS, e+e-, DY, ... 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 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

13 SIDIS Kinematical Plane and Observables
PT U unpolarized L long.polarized T trans.polarized Target polarization Beam helicity s = sUU + ST sUT sin(f – fS) + l ST sLT cos(f – fS) Extraction of the various terms from moments or asymmetries in 

14 SIDIS cross section 18 structure functions
Structure functions decomposition - leading twist (parton model) - higher twist ~M/Q - only f1 and g1 survive PT integration 18 structure functions

15 Observables in SIDIS Observables in SIDIS are the structure function F, not the partonTMD DFs and FFs. Unpolarized structure function: momentum conservation kin. factor DF FF TMD  PT = z kT + pT Need models to unfold DFs and FFs - gaussian ansatz for the transverse momentum dependence

16 TMD measurements at JLab
TMDs are studied at JLab through SIDIS scattering on nucleons (and nuclei) with different experimental equipments B large acceptance spectrometer with good resolution lower luminosity  1034 cm-2 s-1 asymmetry measurements over a broad kinematical range Hall A high resolution and small acceptance spectrometers high luminosity  1037 cm-2 s-1 high polarization 3He target (long. or transv.)  neutron Hall C high precision cross section measurements

17 CLAS results

18 Factorization at CLAS energies
ep→e’p0X DSS (Q2=2.5GeV2) DSS (Q2=25GeV2) In the valence region: multiplicityFF Agreement with FF extraction from world data

19 Double spin asymmetry Same analysis as in the collinear g1 extraction but now focus on TMD smooth dependence for all pions CLAS Calculations using gaussian ansatz 1.0 0.68 0.4 <kT2>g / <kT2>f transverse mom. distribution different for quarks with spin parallel or antiparallel to nucleon spin

20 Target single spin asymmetry
leading term higher twist p p p0 HT terms can be important at JLab H1 : Collins FF of transverse polarized quark in unpol. hadron h1L : correlation between transverse spin of quarks and longitudinal spin of nucleon

21 Beam single spin asymmetry
higher twist Non-zero PT dependence dominant contribution from g? g ~ HT correction of Sivers DF no xB dependence same size as p+

22 Hall A and C results

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

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

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 Need more data, especially on kaons
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 p+ favoured FF u  p+ 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

33 Conclusions Study of TMDs is one of the main items in the JLab physics program They provide a novel insight into the rich nucleon structure The first generation of experiments have shown evidence of sizeable effects due to TMDs but also open questions A new generation of experiments is in preparation at JLab with higher luminosity and improved detectors to test fundamental properties of TMDs universality  test of gauge structure of QCD

37 z-dependence of SIDIS proton g1/F1
CLAS 5.7 GeV PRELIMINARY No significant z-dependence for 0.3<z<0.7 Good agreement with leading order calculation

38 Double spin asymmetry on the neutron
Evidence for non zero g1T opposite sign between p+ and p- consistent in sign with models but larger effect

39 Single spin asymmetry – new data

40 p multiplicities in SIDIS
ep→e’pX Hall-C M.Aghasyan DSS (Q2=2.5GeV2) DSS (Q2=25GeV2) Tests of factorization performed at Hall-C (charged pions) and Hall-B (neutral pions) indicate that cross sections and multiplicities are consistent with partonic picture and factorization used to calculate curves in both plots. p+/- multiplicities at large z diverge from SIDIS predictions p0 multiplicities less affected by higher twists 0.4<z<0.7 kinematical range, where higher twists are expected to be small
