- To access the gluon contribution to the nucleon spin - To understand the role of the Axial Anomaly in the explanation of the spin crisis Nucleon Spin Naive Quark Model Pure valence description of constituent quarks: ∆u = + 4/3 ∆d = - 1/3 ∆Σ = 1 Relativistic Quark Model ∆Σ ≈ 0.75 QCD framework Hyperons β decay constants + SU(3) flavor symmetry ∆Σ = a 0 ≈ 0.60 compatible with the Relativistic QM prediction However, the EMC measured ∆Σ = 0.12 ± 0.09 ± 0.14 SPIN CRISIS a 0 = ΔΣ – (3α s /2π)ΔG A measurement of ∆G is needed

How To Acess ΔG/G Indirect Measurement: QCD analysis: fit to the nucleon spin structure function g 1 (x) Direct Measurement: ∆G/G can be accessed via Photon Gluon Fusion (PGF) process Unfortunately, the limited range in Q 2 does not allow for a precise determination of ∆G

PGF Process Two approaches are used to tag PGF process q = c: - Open Charm D 0, D * decay - Clean signal - Combinatorial background - Low statistics q = u, d, s: - High-p t hadron Pairs - Physical background - High statistics A PGF = a LL x (∆G/G) factorization theorem PGF

R i (fraction of the process i), a LL, ∆q, q, q and G are obtained from - Monte Carlo Simulation based on PYTHIA generator and Geant. - pQCD Calculation - pdf in the nucleon from GRSV2000 and GRV98LO parametrization - pdf in the photon from GRS parametrization The polarized pdfs in the photon ∆q and ∆G are not available. Therefore the positivity limit is used to constrain them which leads to 2 extreme scenarios. ∆G/G at Q 2 <1GeV 2 A || /D = R PGF ∆G/G a LL PGF + R qq ∆q/q a LL (∆q/q) qq γ + R qg ∆G/G a LL (∆q/q) qg γ + R gq ∆q/q a LL (∆G/G) gq γ + R gg ∆G/G a LL (∆G/G) gg γ γ γ γ Included as systematic error in the estimation of ∆G/G + R QCDC ∆q/q a LL QCDC qq’ Resolved photon processes γ
