8 Form Factor (1) Rutherford scattering cross section doesn’t depend on any fixed scale in problem. We had assumed point like nucleus. What happens for finite sized nuclei? Coulomb potential modified: Matrix element modified 8 8 8 8 8 8

9 Form Factor (2) Matrix element modified compared to pure Coulomb by form factor Form factor is Fourier transform of charge distribution in 3D space to momentum space. In principle: measure deviations from pure Coulomb potential  F(q2)  inverse FT gives ρ(r). Why doesn’t this work in practice? 9 9 9 9 9 9

10 Form Factor (3) Requires probe with λ<<R ie qR>>1 (high energy!). Assume toy model for charge distribution ie Gives form factor (work it out yourself!) q << m F(q2) ~ constant because resolution too poor. q >> m F(q2) ~ 1/q4 and σ suppressed by 1/q8 10 10 10 10 10 10

25 Neutrino quark scattering
q and q’ not same (CKM). Also ignore threshold effects 25 25 25 25

26 Neutrino Nucleon Scattering
QPM: scattering of leptons from nucleon is incoherent sum of scattering off quarks Assumption only valid for large q2>>1 GeV2 Justification from QCD and experiment Let q(x) be the pdf for finding quark with momentum fraction x in a proton. What does q(x) mean? QPM can’t predict q(x)  need fits to data. Many clear predictions can be checked with data 26 26 26 26

27 Neutrino Nucleon Scattering (1)

29 Neutrino Nucleon Scattering (2)
Compare y distributions with data If anti-quarks negligible: nN : flat y anti-n N: (1-y)2 Data fits combination of flat and (1-y)2  quarks are spin ½ and interact by a parity violating interactions. 29 29 29 29

30 Neutrino Nucleon Scattering (3)

35 Parton Distribution Functions (4)
What about neutrons? Assume SU(2) symmetry: 35 35 35

36 Nuclear Targets What about nuclei? Assume isoscalar target I=0
Just average n and p and assume s=sbar 36 36 36

37 Sum Rules (1) Important consistency checks of QPM
Divide q(x) into valence and sea 2 valence u + 1 valence d in proton Gross-Llewellyn-Smith sum rule Check with data  37 37 37

38 GLS Sum Rule Agrees with data at large Q2
Disagreement at low Q2 can be explained by higher order QCD corrections. 38 38 38

39 Addler Sum Rule Addler Sum Rule:
Two valence u and one valence d  SA=1 2SA=2.02 ± 0.4 (D. Allasia, et al., Z. Phys. C 28 (1985) 321.) Agrees with data! 39 39 39

40 Momentum Sum Integrate F2  momentum fraction carried by quarks
Naïve expectiation: I=1 but I=0.44 at Q2 =10 GeV2. ~ ½ momentum is carried by particles that don’t experience weak force First evidence for gluons! More direct evidence when we look at QCD. 40 40 40

41 Charged Lepton Probes Advantages of e/m Disadvantages?
Higher intensity beams ep (HERRA)  access to larger range in x and q2. Disadvantages? How to calculate the lepton – nucleon s? Calculate e m scattering Generalise to e q scattering Generalise to eN scattering (QPM) 41 41 41

42 em Scattering (1) Work by analogy with elastic ne scattering
EM interactions, photon massless and strength given by a. Need to evaluate spin factor F 42 42 42

43 em Scattering (2) Spin factor F
Calculate amplitude for each spin configuration Sum over final spin states Average over initial spin states For (1) and (2): JZ=0  same angular distribution as ne  isotropic. For (3) : JZ=1 same rotation matrices as for 43 43 43

44 em Scattering (3) For (4): JZ=-1 rotation matrices gives
Averaging over initial spins and summing over final spin states EM parity conserving  equal amplitudes for LH and RH (high energy –ive and +ive H) 44 44 44

46 e/m Nucleon DIS Same assumptions as for n DIS:
Incoherent scattering off individual quarks Momentum distribution functions fi(x) cf general phenomenological formula 46 46

47 Quark Spin (1) Equating powers y QPM and phenomenological formula (Callan-Gross) Data agrees with spin ½ and excludes spin 0. Simple explanation? Quark spin also measured in e+e- 2 jets. /2 47 47

48 Quark Spin (2) e+e-  qq  2 jets Assume jet direction = quark
Helicity conservation for EM interaction Coupling is LR and LR Jz=+1 or Jz=-1 Rotation matrix for J=1, m=1 ,m’=1 and m=-1,m’=-1 amplitude

49 Quark Spin (3) Data from e+e- annihilation at Petra
Agrees with 1+cos2q Confirms quark spin=1/2.

50 Scaling Most critcial prediction of QPM is scaling  SF depend on x but not Q2 at high Q2 and n. Data show approximate scaling. If quarks had finite size  very large form factor suppression. Slow (log) variations with Q2 can be explained by QCD. Quarks are point like within resolution of current experiments 50 50

51 Quark Charges (1) Compare eN and nN <q2>
Assume isospin symmetry up=dn ubar=dbar (?) Isoscalar target 51 51

52 Quark Charges (2) cf nN & eN SFs and assuming s negligible (ok at x>~0.2)? Agreement confirms quark charge assignments. Quark charges also confirmed by (see appendix for plot) x 18/5 F2(ep) ● F2(np) 52 52

53 Gottfried Sum Rule Compare ep and en DIS Split quark = valence + sea
How can we have a n target ??? Split quark = valence + sea Define Gottfried sum 53


55 NMC Data Naïve QPM  IG=1/3
Lets look at data from mp DIS for H and D targets Em=90 & 280 GeV No data at very low x Why? Extrapolate x=0 IG=0.235 ± 0.026 Why ??? NMC, Phys. Rev. D 50, R1–R3 (1994) 55

56 DIS Summary Scaling cross section  point like partons
Quark spin = ½ confirmed. Comparison of n and charged lepton data consistent with quark charges. Quarks are real ! Momentum sum: more to proton than quarks: gluons important. Why does the QPM work at all?

57 Gluons & QCD Direct evidence for gluons Running coupling constant
Asymptotic freedom Confinement Scaling violations and gluon distribution Hadron-hadron collisions Drell-Yann: m+m-, W & Z. Jet production Look to the future: LHC 57

58 Direct Evidence for Gluons

60 Gluon Spin Measure angle of 3rd jet  sensitive to gluon spin
Boost 2 lowest pt jets to CMS and plot angle jets make with thrust axis  Consistent with 1. 2 1 3 2 q 1 3

61 QCD We start from experiment with:
Spin 1 gluons Number of quark colours = 3. Assume theory is given by SU(3) colour. The group theory for SU(3) colour identical to SU(3) flavour but colour is conserved exactly (cf electric charge) but SU(3) flavour is approximate. Quarks come in 3 colours, red, blue, green (nothing to do with colour of light! Just convenient labels).

62 SU(3) Unitary matrices U†U=UU†=I.
Diagonal terms must be real  3 constraints. 6 off-diagonal terms but if U†ij =0  U†ji=0. Leaves 3 complex elements  3*2=6 constraints. Det(U†U)=Det((UT)*) Det(U)=1 Det(U)* Det(U)=1  Det(U)= ±1

63 SU(3) – continued SU(3): select Det(U)=+1. 3*3 complex matrix: Quarks:
Start with 2*9=18 numbers Constraints 3(diagonal) + 6 (off-diagonal) + 1 (det U=+1) SU(3) Needs 8 parameters  8 generators for SU(3)  8 gluons. Quarks: fundamental representation of SU(3), triplet of states labeled |r>, |b>, |g>

64 SU(3) Octet Gluon wave functions (same maths as for SU(3) flavour)

65 Consequences of SU(3) 8 gluon states (transform into each other under SU(3) rotations). Mathematically we could have a colour singlet gluon How do we know that such a gluon state doesn’t exist? Why is it ok to have colour singlet states for mesons? How do we know that this choice is correct?

66 Colour Factors (1) We can use gluon wave functions to calculate relative amplitudes from different qq scattering processes (colour factors). qq qq: same colour, chose r (b or g would give same answer): rrrr qqg vertex requires term  g3 and g8 Amplitudes from gluon wave functions (previous page):

67 Colour Factors (2) Next consider two different colours, arbitrary choice, take rb Add amplitudes for (1) rbrb and (2) rbbr (1) needs and terms  g3 and g8 (2) needs and terms  g1 and g2

68 Colour Factors (3) Antiquarks -ive sign at vertex (cf –ive electric charge in QED). Compare with Same gluons exchanged, flip sign Compare with

69 Colour Factors Summary
Now we’ve done the maths we can do some physics … Learn something about quark binding in hadrons Calculate scattering amplitudes

70 Quark Binding in Mesons (1)
Now consider colour singlet state of Calculate colour factor for single gluon exchange for singlet using our previous results 3 terms (colours) like Gives total = -3*2/9 = -2/3 Same term for Multiply *3 for 3 colours = 3*(-2/3)=-2 Final result for colour singlet a=-2/3-2 =-8/3

71 Quark Binding in Mesons (2)
Amplitude also contains coupling “constant” from each vertex Propagator gives 1/q2 (4-momentum transfer) In non-relativistic (NR) limit Fourier Transform of potential  scattering amplitude. Inverse FT (amplitude)  potential V(r) ~ 1/r Colour factor =-8/3 negative suggests that colour singlet should be bound state. Similar calculation for colour octet gives +ive colour factor. Suggestive of confinement for colour singlets but beware this is NR limit in which coupling constant large so can’t use perturbation theory.

72 Quark scattering Don’t have free quarks so can’t measure the qq scattering cross sections directly but … We can do hadron-hadron (mainly pp or pp) scattering and if we know quark PDFs we can combine this with these scattering amplitudes to calculate measurable cross sections (see later).

73 QCD Assume SU(3) colour gauge symmetry. Consider transformation:
g s coupling constant and Ta are the generators of SU(3) Infinitesimal transformation Add 8 gluon fields to keep gauge invariance fabc are structure constants of SU(3).

74 QCD (2) Replace derivative with covariant derivative (cf QED)
KE term for gluon fields This gives KE for gluons and qqg vertices (cf QED) and 3g and 4g vertices (unlike QED).

75 Running Coupling Constant - QED
QED: example of running coupling constant Shielding by virtual e+e- pairs  a increases at shorter distance, higher Q2. Bare charge & renormalised charge This term depends on number of “active” flavours m<Q) Burcham & Jobes p

76 Running Coupling Constant - QCD
Similar shielding from gq qbar Anti-shielding from ggg Net result: as(Q2) decreases as Q2 increases  asymptotic freedom. Explains why naïve QPM works at large Q2: as(Q2) small so lowest order calculation gives good approximation. Infrared slavery  quark confinement.

77 Running Coupling Constant – QCD (2)
Experiments measure as(Q) at different values of Q2. tau decay BR: how? Quarkonia: how? e+e-3 jets: how? Good fit to QCD prediction with as (MZ)= ± 10 100 Q (GeV)

78 Experimental Tests SU(3)
Running of as with Q2 is implicit test of SU(3) Can we do explicit test of SU(3)? SU(3) predicts colour factors for qqg and ggg vertices: CF=4/3 and CA=3. Several variables sensitive to this in e+e- hadrons. Some examples: Charged particle multiplicity in q and g jets Angular distributions in 4 jet events Event shapes, e.g. Thrust

79 Experimental Fit Fit for CF and CA consistent with SU(3) and inconsistent with other choices for the symmetry. CA = 2.89 ± 0.21 CF = 1.30 ± 0.09 S. Kluth, Tests of QCD at e+e- colliders doi: / /69/6/R04

80 Scaling Violations Expect log scaling violations in QCD
qq g gq qbar gg g As Q2 increases, resolve more splitting. Valence q decreases Sea q and gluons increase at low x

81 Scaling Violations Need to look over large range of x and Q2.
HERA data gives good coverage (high energy!) At low x, F2 increases as Q2 increases At high x, F2 decreases as Q2 increases Use these scaling violations to fit the gluon distribution  figures

82 Kinematic Plane

83 Measurements from HERA + Fixed Target
Low x: F2 increases as Q2 increases Approximate scaling at intermediate x High x: F2 decreases as Q2 increases

Master formula: Change variables (appendix) Scaling cross section:

88 Drell-Yann (2) Scaling

89 Drell-Yann (3) Use DY (+QCD) predict Z cross sections for pbar p and pp

90 W Charge Asymmetry (1) Define asymmetry in terms of rapidity of charged lepton Assume W+ from u valence dbar sea W- from d valence ubar sea

91 W Charge Asymmetry (2) Assume sea symmetric ubar=dbar
u(x)> d(x)  expect A +ive. u(x)/d(x) increasing with x. Rapidity lepton correlated with rapidity W  expect A to increase with h.

92 W Charge Asymmetry (3)

93 Dijet Angular Distributions
Dijet LHC: mainly gg  gg. Angular distribution dominated by g exchange (cf Rutherford scattering) propagator  1/Q4 Gives angular distribution ~ 1/sin4(q/2) Change variables to get flatter distribution:

94 Dijet Angular Distribution
Sensitive to any new contact interaction cf 4 Fermi theory  more isotropic distribution  excess of events at low c. L > % cl  d< fm

95 DIS & QCD Summary Quarks are real! QCD
Scaling  point like constituents of proton Spin ½ and charges from quark model More to p than uud: sea quarks + gluons. QCD Running coupling constant, explains success of naïve QPM. Measurements of as(Q2). Extension to hadron-hadron collisions

96 Appendix

97 e+e- R

98 Crossing Symmetry From the solutions to the Dirac equation we
formally represent the states which apparently have negative energy as positive energy states travelling backwards in time. crossing symmetry relates the amplitudes of reactions particle anti-particle. Fortwo crossed diagrams structure of the matrix elements are the same  replace the momentum of the incoming (outgoing) particles  minus that of the outgoing (incoming) anti-particles.
