Structure of nucleons Our picture/understanding of the nucleon evolves ! But many questions remain unanswered … Where does the proton spin come from ? How are quarks and gluons distributed inside the nucleon ? What is the proton size ? Why are quarks and gluons confined ? How are constituent quarks related to QCD ? …

In short … Noether’s theorem : Continuous symmetry Translation invariance Rotation invariance Conserved quantity Total (linear) momentum Total angular momentum We all agree on the total quantities BUT … We disagree on their decomposition

9
In short … 3 viewpoints : Meaningless, unphysical discussions No unique definition ill-defined problem There is a unique «physical» decomposition Missing fundamental principle in standard approach Matter of convention and convenience Measured quantities are unique BUT physical interpretation is not unique

11
Back to basics AM decomposition is a complicated story Let’s have a glimpse …

12
Back to basics Classical mechanics Free pointlike particle Total AM is conserved but not unique !

13
Back to basics Classical mechanics Free composite particle CM motion can be separated

14
Back to basics Classical mechanics Internal AM Conventional choice : Option 2 with Boost invariance Uniqueness Option 1 : Option 2 : Boost invariance Uniqueness The quantity is boost-invariant BUT its physical interpretation is simple only in the CM frame !

15
Frame Frame-dependent quantity (e.g. ) Boost-invariant extension (BIE) Back to basics Classical mechanics

16
Frame BIE1 Frame-dependent quantity (e.g. ) «Natural» frames Boost-invariant extension (BIE) Back to basics Classical mechanics CM (e.g. )

17
Frame BIE1 BIE2 Frame-dependent quantity (e.g. ) «Natural» frames Boost-invariant extension (BIE) Back to basics Classical mechanics CM (e.g. )

18
Back to basics Classical electrodynamics Charged pointlike particle in external magnetic field AM conservation ???

19
Back to basics Charged pointlike particle in external magnetic field Kinetic and canonical AM are different «Hidden» kinetic AM Conserved canonical AM System = matter + radiation Ambiguous ! Classical electrodynamics

20
Back to basics Quantum mechanics Pointlike particle at rest has intrinsic AM (spin) In general, only is conserved AM is quantized All components cannot be simultaneously measured

21
Back to basics Composite particle at rest Quantum average Expectation values are in general not quantized Quantum mechanics

22
Back to basics Special relativity Lorentz boosts do not commute Spin uniquely defined in the rest frame only ! Rest frame Moving frame «Standard» boost

23
Back to basics Special relativity Relativistic mass is frame-dependent No (complete) separation of CM coordinates from internal coordinates ! Lorentz contraction Relativity of simultaneity

24
Frame-dependent quantity (e.g. ) Frame LIE1 LIE2 «Natural» frames Lorentz-invariant extension (LIE) Back to basics Rest (e.g. ) Special relativity

25
Back to basics Gauge theory Gauge invariant Gauge non-invariant […] in QCD we should make clear what a quark or gluon parton is in an interacting theory. The subtlety here is in the issue of gauge invariance: a pure quark field in one gauge is a superposition of quarks and gluons in another. Different ways of gluon field gauge fixing predetermine different decompositions of the coupled quark-gluon fields into quark and gluon degrees of freedom. [Bashinsky, Jaffe (1998)] A choice of gauge is a choice of basis

26
Back to basics Gauge theory Analogy with integration «Gauge» 1«Gauge» 2 RiemannLebesgue Which one is «physical» ? Some would say : Others would say: None! Only the total area under the curve makes sense Both! Choosing one or another is a matter of convenience

27
Back to basics 3 strategies : 1)Consider only simple (local) gauge-invariant quantities 2)Relate these quantities to observables 3)Try to find an interpretation (optional) Gauge theory 1)Fix the gauge 2)Consider quantities with simple interpretation 3)Try to find the corresponding observables 1)Define new complicated (non-local) gauge-invariant quantities 2)Consider quantities with simple interpretation 3)Try to find the corresponding observables

28
Gauge non-invariant quantity (e.g. ) Gauge GIE1 GIE2 «Natural» gauges Gauge-invariant extension (GIE) Back to basics Coulomb (e.g. ) Gauge theory [Dirac (1955)]

29
Infinitely many GIEs Back to basics Gauge theory […] one can generalize a gauge variant nonlocal operator […] to more than one gauge invariant expressions, raising the problem of deciding which is the “true” one. [Bashinsky, Jaffe (1998)] In other words, the gauge-invariant extension of the gluon spin in light-cone gauge can be measured. Note that one can easily find gauge-invariant extensions of the gluon spin in other gauges. But we may not always find an experimental observable which reduces to the gluon spin in these gauges. Uniqueness issue [Hoodbhoy, Ji (1999)] Some GIEs are nevertheless measurable

30
Back to basics Time dependence and interaction Forms of dynamics Scale and scheme dependence Should Lorentz invariance be manifest ? Quantum gauge transformation Surface terms Evolution equation How are different GIEs related ? Should the energy-momentum tensor be symmetric ? Topological effects ? Longitudinal vs transverse … As promised, it is pretty complicated … Additional issues

53
We measure frame-dependent quantities Then combine them in a frame-independent way And finally interpret in a special frame Back to basics Special relativity The proper length of a pencil is clearly frame independent. When we say the length of a house in the frame v = c is the same as the proper length of the pencil, we are not saying that the length of the house is frame-independent. Rather, we are saying that the length of the house in a special frame can be known from measuring a frame-independent quantity. v [Hoodbhoy, Ji (1999)]
