Introduction DIS provided rich information on quark-gluon structure of the nucleon and the strong interaction (QCD) High energy: asymptotic freedom perturbative QCD calculation works, QCD well tested parton distributions functions (PDFs) extracted from DIS data quark-parton models large-x region, spin-flavor decomposition Low-to-intermediate energy: confinement quark-gluon correlations: higher twists test QCD in the strong interaction (non-perturbative) region? Semi-inclusive DIS a new window to study nucleon structure and QCD

Nucleon Structure Beyond Simple Parton Models Naïve quark-parton models no interactions between quarks reasonable at high Q 2 due to asymptotic freedom Interaction important at low to intermediate Q 2 quantify the interaction 1 st step beyond parton distributions: quark-gluon correlations how to measure q-g correlations?
