Overview The inclusive nucleon SSF g 1 and g 2 are measured over wide range, but remains unmeasured below Q 2 =1.3 GeV 2. The missing piece of the JLab Spin Physics Program. Motivations 1)g 2 p is central to our understanding of nucleon structure. 2)BC Sum Rule violation suggested at large Q 2. 3)State of the Art PT calculations fail for neutron spin polarizability LT. 4)Knowledge of is a leading uncertainty in Hydrogen Hyperfine calculations. 5)Resonance Structure, in particular the ¢ (1232). 6)Also a leading uncertainty in longitudinal measurements of (Hall B EG1, EG4). This Experiment Measure in the resonance region for 0.02 < Q 2 < 0.4 using the Hall A septa and the polarized ammonia target.

Chiral Perturbation Theory Though quantum chromodynamics (QCD) is generally accepted as the underlying theory of the strong interactions, a numerical check of the theory in the confinement region is difficult due to the strong coupling constant. A plethora of models have been inspired by QCD, but none of these models can be quantitatively derived from QCD. Only two descriptions are, in principle, exact realizations of QCD, namely chiral perturbation theory and lattice gauge theory. D. Drechsel (GDH 2000), Mainz Germany, June 2000
PT Calculations The implementation of PT utilizes approximations which must be tested For example: The order to which expansion is performed. Heavy Baryon approximation. How to address short distance effects. PT now being used to extrapolate Lattice QCD to the physical region. Quark mass: From few hundred MeV to physical quark mass. Volume: From finite to infinite Lattice spacing: From discrete to continuous. Crucial to establish the reliability of calculations and to determine how high in Q 2 (energy) we can go Example: QCDSF Lattice group utilizes Meissner et al. ÂPT calc
Generalized Polarizabilities Fundamental observables that characterize nucleon structure. Guichon et al. Nucl. Phys. A 591, 606 (1995). VCS observables are sensitive to the GPs Expected precision on 2000 hr MAINZ run Need additional out of plane measurements to get ° 0 which is related to the VCS GPs at Q 2 =0. No simple relation between ± LT and the VCS GPS at Q 2 =0 Measurement of ± LT complementary to the VCS GP measurements

Working on NNLO. ¼¢ term included properly? Short range effects beyond ¼ N? Isoscalar in nature? t-channel axial vector meson exchange? An effect of the QCD vacuum structure? Isospin separation is critical to understand the nature of the problem Contains a Bjorken-like part due to g 1 and an unknown part due to g 2 From theoretical point of view, usually easier to deal with isospin separated quantity

g 2 p unmeasured below Q 2 =1.3 GeV days to measure g 2 p at low Q 2 and complete the Jlab Spin Physics program. No existing experiment or 6 GeV proposal will provide this data. This experiment is not possible with 12 GeV. Test Integral relations and Sum Rules BC Sum Rule d 2 p (Q 2 ) Extended GDH Sum Eliminate leading systematic of EG4 measurement of Hall B. Hydrogen Hyperfine Splitting g 2 is large contribution to systematic uncertainty Contribution dominated by Q 2 <0.4 State of the art Â PT calcs work well for many spin-dependent quantities up to 0.1 GeV 2 But fail for ± LT. WHY? Need isospin separation to resolve.
