22 22 TSSA and J/Ψ Production J/ψ TSSA is sensitive to the production mechanisms Assuming a non-zero gulon sivers function, In pp scattering, TSSA vanishes if the pair are produced in a color-octet model but survives in the color- singlet model Feng Yuan, Phys. Rev D78, 014024(2008) One color-singlet diagram — no cancellation, asymmetry generated by the initial state interaction Two color-octet diagrams — cancellation between initial and final state interactions, no asymmetry In Collinear higher twist approach, the relation is not quiet simple. There are partial but not full cancellation of terms. Z. Kang

44 Open charm at fixed target (cross section) Charm cross section by fixed target experiments are reasonably reproduced by LO pQCD event generator (PYTHIA) with large K-factor, or by NLO pQCD calculation (HVQMNR). Note that pQCD may or may not be applicable to charm production because charm mass is small (~1.5GeV) In the left figure, world pi+N data and p+N data are compared with PYTHIA calculation. The s 1/2 dependence of the calculation mainly reflects the underlying PDF. s 1/2 (GeV)  cc in pN,  N
