Inclusive and semi-inclusive production of spin-3/2 hadrons in $e^+e^-$ annihilation

  title={Inclusive and semi-inclusive production of spin-3/2 hadrons in \$e^+e^-\$ annihilation},
  author={Jing Zhao and Zhe Zhang and Zuo-tang Liang and Tianbo Liu and Ya-jin Zhou},
We investigate the inclusive and semi-inclusive productions of spin-3/2 hadrons, such as Ω, in unpolarized e + e − annihilation. The general differential cross sections are expressed in terms of structure functions in accordance to the polarization of the hadron and the azimuthal modulations. We derive a complete definition of quark transverse momentum dependent (TMD) fragmentation functions (FFs) to spin-3/2 hadrons for the first time from the decomposition of the quark-quark correlation matrix…

Tensor polarization dependent fragmentation functions and e+e-\to V \pi X at high energies

We present the systematic results for three-dimensional fragmentation functions of spin-1 hadrons defined via the quark-quark correlator. There are totally 72 such fragmentation functions, among them

Higher-twist contribution to fragmentation function in inclusive hadron production in e + e − annihilation

We apply collinear expansion to inclusive hadron production in e + e − annihilation and derive a formalism suitable for systematic study of leading as well as higher-twist contributions to

Leading and higher twist contributions in semi-inclusive e+e- annihilation at high energies

By applying the collinear expansion to the semi-inclusive hadron production process $e^++e^-\to h+\bar q(jet)+X$ at high energies, we construct a theoretical framework where the leading and higher

Transverse-momentum-dependent parton distribution functions up to twist 4 for spin-1 hadrons

We show possible transverse-momentum-dependent parton distribution functions (TMDs) for spin-1 hadrons including twist-3 and twist-4 functions in addition to the leading twist-2 ones by investigating

Transverse-momentum-dependent fragmentation functions in e+e- annihilation

Abstract.Fragmentation functions are non-perturbative functions used to describe the formation of colorless, observable hadrons starting from a colored, partonic initial state. The knowledge of these

Polarized vector meson production in semi-inclusive DIS

We make a systematic calculation for polarized vector meson production in semi-inclusive leptonnucleon deep inelastic scattering e−N → e−V X. We consider the general case of neutral current

Polarized hadron pair production from electron-positron annihilation

We study the production of two almost back-to-back hadrons from the annihilation of an electron and a positron, allowing for the polarization of all particles involved. In particular, we conduct a

Three-dimensional imaging of the nucleon and semi-inclusive high-energy reactions

We present a short overview of studies of the transverse-momentum-dependent parton distribution functions of the nucleon. The aim of such studies is to provide three-dimensional imaging of the
