# Computing Light-Front Wave Functions Without Light-Front Quantization: A Large-Momentum Effective Theory Approach

@inproceedings{Ji2021ComputingLW, title={Computing Light-Front Wave Functions Without Light-Front Quantization: A Large-Momentum Effective Theory Approach}, author={X. Ji and Yizhuang Liu}, year={2021} }

Light-front wave functions play a fundamental role in the light-front quantization approach to QCD and hadron structure. However, a naive implementation of the light-front quantization suffers from various subtleties including the well-known zero-mode problem, the associated rapidity divergences which mixes ultra-violet divergences with infrared physics, as well as breaking of spatial rotational symmetry. We advocate that the light-front quantization should be viewed as an effective theory in… Expand
