10 Example: Separation of Collins, Sivers and pretzelocity effects through angular dependence
Collins frag. Func. from e+e- collisions SIDIS SSAs depend on 4-D variables (x, Q2, z and PT ) Large angular coverage and precision measurement of asymmetries in 4-D phase space is essential.

11 Transversity The third PDFs in addition to f1 and g1L

20 Double Spin Asymmetry: g1T
Worm Gear Leading twist TMD PDFs T-even, Chiral-even Dominated by real part of interference between L=0 (S) and L=1 (P) states Imaginary part -> Sivers effect First TMDs in Pioneer Lattice calculation arXiv: [hep-lat], Europhys.Lett.88:61001,2009 arXiv: [hep-lat] , Phys.Rev.D83:094507,2011 g1T = TOT g1T (1) S-P int. P-D int. Light-Cone CQM by B. Pasquini B.P., Cazzaniga, Boffi, PRD78, 2008 g1T function is sometimes referred as the “worm-gear” function, since the spin direction for quark and nucleon are perpendicular to each other It is T-even anc Chiral-even. It is dominated by the real part of interference of quark wavefunctions that differ by one unit of quark OAM. Using a Light-cone constituent quark model, the g1T function can be explicitly decomposed to the major contribution of S-P states and a small contribution from the P-D interference. Effect resembles the g1T function has been recently studied using lattice QCD calculations. More studies are on-going And it can be probed my measuring the beam-target double spin asymmetry, A_LT and look for the cos(…) modulation Target Spin Beam Helicity e e’ π X n

21 Existing ALT Results are preliminary
No measurement until 2002 Preliminary COMPASS results ALT on proton and deuteron Fixed beam helicity (μ beam) Low x, small predicted asymmetry Preliminary HERMES results ALT on proton New measurement needed Different target for flavor decomposition Higher precision at valence region Double spin reversal to cleanly separate ALT Proton arXiv: [hep-ex] Preliminary There is no measurement on ALT until COMPASS provided the first preliminary data on deuterons and protons using a Muon beam with fixed helicity. Very recently, HERMES collaboration also released their preliminary result on proton. A new measurement on neutron is needed for flavor decomposition, especially for the d quark We would like to focus on the valence region, where the models predict maximum signal And a double spin reversal can cleanly separate ALT from other SSA terms, including both beam-SSA and target-SSA. arXiv: [hep-ex]

31 Projected measurements in 1-D (x)
Expected improvement of Sivers function (A. Prokudin) x Assumption: We know the kT dependence, Q2 evolution of TMDs. Also knowledge on TMFF  project onto 1-D in x to illustrate the power of SoLID-3He.

32 Summary Frontiers in nucleon structure go beyond collinear, 1-D picture TMDs Three-dimensional description of nucleon in momentum space Direct link with orbital motion (orbital angular momentum) Transverse motion: spin-orbit correlations, multi-parton correlations, dynamics of confinement and QCD 10% quark tensor charge from both SSA data from SoLID provides excellent test of LQCD predictions JLab 12-GeV upgrade will provide excellent opportunities to map out the 3-dimensional structure of the nucleon through TMDs and GPDs SoLID will just do that!
