Semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering Known lepton part with much flexibility (unused in DIS) Involves two hadrons and hence a much more complex hadronic tensor

14
Off-diagonal elements (RL or LR) are chiral-odd functions Chiral-odd soft parts must appear with partner in e.g. SIDIS, DY Matrix representation for M = [ (x) + ] T Quark production matrix, directly related to the helicity formalism Anselmino et al.

Distribution From A T ( ) m.e. including the gauge link (in SIDIS) A+A+ One needs also A T G + = + A T A T ( )= A T ( ∞ ) + d G + Belitsky, Ji, Yuan, hep-ph/0208038 Boer, M, Pijlman, hep-ph/0303034

21
Parametrization of (x,p T ) Link dependence allows also T-odd distribution functions since T U[0, ] T = U[0,- ] Functions h 1 and f 1T (Sivers) nonzero! These functions (of course) exist as fragmentation functions (no T-symmetry) H 1 (Collins) and D 1T

22
Interpretation unpolarized quark distribution helicity or chirality distribution transverse spin distr. or transversity need p T T-odd

24
T-odd single spin asymmetry with time reversal constraint only even-spin asymmetries the time reversal constraint cannot be applied in DY or in 1-particle inclusive DIS or e e In those cases single spin asymmetries can be used to select T-odd quantities * * W (q;P,S;P h,S h ) = W ( q;P,S;P h,S h ) W (q;P,S;P h,S h ) = W (q;P,S;P h,S h ) W (q;P,S;P h,S h ) = W (q;P, S;P h, S h ) W (q;P,S;P h,S h ) = W (q;P,S;P h,S h ) _ __ _ _ ___ _ _ _ _ time reversal symmetry structure parity hermiticity * *

COLLINS ASYMMETRY RESULTS OF COMPASS A coll depends on p hT, z h, x Bj with more statistics, the full analysis is foreseen from 2002 data: A coll vs x BjSign!

28
COLLINS ASYMMETRY RESULTS OF COMPASS from 2002 data: A Coll vs z h all the tests made are consistent with the fact that systematic effects, if present, are smaller than statistical errors Sign!

Distribution A+A+ A+A+ including the gauge link (in SIDIS or DY) SIDIS SIDIS [-] DY DY [+]

30
Difference between [+] and [-] upon integration integrated quark distributions transverse moments measured in azimuthal asymmetries ± Back to the lightcone (theoretically clean) twist 2 twist 2 & 3

31
Difference between [+] and [-] upon integration gluonic pole m.e. (T-odd) In momentum space: Conclusion: T-odd parts are gluon-driven (QCD interactions)

32
Time reversal constraints for distribution functions Time reversal (x,p T ) (x,p T ) G T-even (real) T-odd (imaginary) Conclusion: T-odd effects in SIDIS and DY have opposite signs

33
Time reversal constraints for fragmentation functions Time reversal out (z,p T ) in (z,p T ) G T-even (real) T-odd (imaginary)

34
Time reversal constraints for fragmentation functions G out out out out T-even (real) T-odd (imaginary) Time reversal out (z,p T ) in (z,p T ) Conclusion: T-odd effects in SIDIS and e e are not related

35
other hard processes qq-scattering as hard subprocess insertions of gluons collinear with parton 1 are possible at many places this leads for ‘external’ parton fields to gauge link to lightcone infinity e.g. C. Bomhof, P.J. Mulders and F. Pijlman PLB 596 (2004) 277

36
other hard processes qq-scattering as hard subprocess insertions of gluons collinear with parton 1 are possible at many places this leads for ‘external’ parton fields to gauge link to lightcone infinity The correlator (x,p T ) enters for each contributing term in squared amplitude with specific link The link may enhance the effect of the (T-odd) gluonic pole contribution involving also specific color factors Finding the right observables, however is crucial

37
Conclusions Hard processes quark and gluon structure of hadrons (quark distributions, their chirality and transverse polarization) Many new observables accessible when going beyond collinearity, often in combination with (transverse) polarization (among others the simplest access to transverse quark polarization) Going beyond collinearity gives access to gluon dynamics in hadrons, which can be done in a controlled way via weighted asymmetries (twist limited, t 3), use of chirality, and the specific time-reversal behavior of single spin asymmetries.
