1 Mauro Anselmino, Torino University and INFN, Vancouver, July 31, 2007 The transverse spin structure of the nucleon

2 xP P The longitudinal structure of nucleons is simple It has been studied for almost 40 years Q2Q2

3 essentially x and Q 2 degrees of freedom ….

4 Very good or good knowledge of q(x,Q 2 ), g(x,Q 2 ) and Δq(x,Q 2 ) Poor knowledge of Δg(x,Q2) (Research Plan for Spin Physics at RHIC) Talk by L. De Nardo

5 spin-k correlations? orbiting quarks? Transverse Momentum Dependent distribution functions Space dependent distribution functions ? The transverse structure is much more interesting and less studied

6 The mother of all functions M. Diehl, Trento workshop, June 07 TMDs GPDs Wigner function (Belitsky, Ji, Yuan)

7 TMDs in SIDIS SSA in SIDIS: Sivers functions Collins function from e + e - unpolarized processes (Belle) and first extraction of transversity SSA in hadronic processes Future measurements and transversity (Trento workshop on Transverse momentum, spin, and position distributions of partons in hadrons, June 07)

8 SIDIS kinematics according to Trento conventions (2004) Main source of information on transverse nucleon structure

9 Polarized SIDIS cross section, up to subleading order in 1/Q Kotzinian, NP B441 (1995) 234 Mulders and Tangermann, NP B461 (1996) 197 Boer and Mulders, PR D57 (1998) 5780 Bacchetta et al., PL B595 (2004) 309 Bacchetta et al., JHEP 0702 (2007) 093 SIDISLAND

25 Predictions for JLab

26 The first and 1/2-transverse moments of the Sivers quark distribution functions. The fits were constrained mainly (or solely) by the preliminary HERMES data in the indicated x-range. The curves indicate the 1-σ regions of the various parameterizations. M. Anselmino, M. Boglione, J.C. Collins, U. DAlesio, A.V. Efremov, K. Goeke, A. Kotzinian, S. Menze, A. Metz, F. Murgia, A. Prokudin, P. Schweitzer, W. Vogelsang, F. Yuan Present knowledge of Sivers function (u,d)

27 S number density of partons with longitudinal momentum fraction x and transverse momentum k, inside a proton with spin S M. Burkardt, PR D69, (2004) What do we learn from the Sivers distribution?

28 Total amount of intrinsic momentum carried by partons of flavour a for a proton moving along the +z-axis and polarization vector S

29 Sivers functions extracted from A N data in give also opposite results, with Numerical estimates from SIDIS data U. DAlesio

30 Sivers function and orbital angular momentum Sivers mechanism originates from then it is related to the quark orbital angular momentum D. Sivers For a proton moving along z and polarized along y

31 Sivers function and proton anomalous magnetic moment M. Burkardt, S. Brodsky, Z. Lu, I. Schmidt Both the Sivers function and the proton anomalous magnetic moment are related to correlations of proton wave functions with opposite helicities in qualitative agreement with large z data: related result (M. Burkardt)

32 Collins function from e + e – processes (spin effects without polarization, D. Boer) e + e - CMS frame: KEK e+e+ e-e- e+e+ thrust-axis


34 Fit of BELLE data

35 Extraction of Collins functions and transversity distributions from fitting HERMES + COMPASS + BELLE data M. Anselmino, M. Boglione, U. DAlesio, A. Kotzinian, F. Murgia, A. Prokudin C. Türk

36 What do we learn (if anything yet) from the transversity distributions and the Collins functions ? h 1u and h 1d have opposite signs They are both smaller than Soffer bound Still large uncertainties Tensor charges appear to be smaller than results from lattice QCD calculations M. Wakamatsu, hep-ph/ Collins functions well below the positivity bound. Favoured and unfavoured ones have opposite signs, comparable magnitudes Only the very beginning …

42 It generalizes to polarized case plenty of phases main remaining contribution to SSA from Sivers effect
