Exclusive Scattering off the Deuteron

  title={Exclusive Scattering off the Deuteron},
  author={Daniela Amrath},
Exclusive processes are a special class of processes giving insight into the inner structure of hadrons. In this thesis we consider two exclusive processes and compute their total cross sections as well as the beam charge and beam polarization asymmetries for different kinematical constraints. These calculations offer the opportunity to get access to the nonperturbative GPDs. Theoretically they can be described with the help of models. The first process we investigate contains a GPD of the pion…

Polynomiality sum rules for generalized parton distributions of spin-1 targets

We present the polynomiality sum rules for all leading-twist quark and gluon generalized parton distributions (GPDs) of spin-1 targets such as the deuteron nucleus. The sum rules connect the Mellin

Deeply Virtual Compton Scattering

We study in QCD the physics of deeply virtual Compton scattering (DVCS){emdash}the virtual Compton process in the large s and small t kinematic region. We show that DVCS can probe a new type of {ital

Measurements of differential cross sections for quasielastic electron- deuteron scattering e + d yields e + p + n have been made in which recoil protons were detected in coincidence with the
