# Initial and Final State Interaction Effects in Small-x Quark Distributions

@article{Xiao2010InitialAF, title={Initial and Final State Interaction Effects in Small-x Quark Distributions}, author={Bo-Wen Xiao and Feng Yuan}, journal={Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory}, year={2010} }

We study the initial and final state interaction effects in the transverse momentum dependent parton distributions in the small-x saturation region. In particular, we discuss the quark distributions in the semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering, Drell-Yan lepton pair production and dijet-correlation processes in pA collisions. We calculate the quark distributions in the scalar-QED model and then extend to the color glass condensate formalism in QCD. The quark distributions are found universal…
