A Guide to Light-Cone PDFs from Lattice QCD: An Overview of Approaches, Techniques, and Results
Within the theory of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), the rich structure of hadrons can be quantitatively characterized, among others, using a basis of universal nonperturbative functions: parton
Parton distributions and lattice QCD calculations: a community white paper
In the framework of quantum chromodynamics (QCD), parton distribution functions (PDFs) quantify how the momentum and spin of a hadron are divided among its quark and gluon constituents. Two main
Measurements of Nonsinglet Moments of the Nucleon Structure Functions and Comparison to Predictions from Lattice QCD for Q^{2}=4  GeV^{2}.
This work presents extractions of the nucleon nonsinglet moments utilizing new precision data on the deuteron F_{2} structure function at large Bjorken-x determined via the Rosenbluth separation technique at Jefferson Lab Experimental Hall C with an order of magnitude improvement in precision.
Progress in $x$-dependent partonic distributions from lattice QCD
We review the latest progress in lattice QCD calculations of the partonic structure of hadrons. This structure is, in particular, described in terms of G-dependent distributions, the simplest of
Electromagnetic self-energy contribution to M(p)-M(n) and the isovector nucleon magnetic polarizability.
The determination of the isovector nucleon electromagnetic self-energy, valid to leading order in QED, is updated and modern knowledge of the structure functions is used to precisely determine the inelastic contribution.
Nucleon Structure Functions from Operator Product Expansion on the Lattice.
A new method is proposed to compute the structure functions directly from the virtual, all-encompassing Compton amplitude, utilizing the operator product expansion, overcomes issues of renormalization and operator mixing.
Electromagnetic form factors at large momenta from lattice QCD
Accessing hadronic form factors at large momentum transfers has traditionally presented a challenge for lattice QCD simulations. Here, we demonstrate how a novel implementation of the
On the Feynman-Hellmann theorem in quantum field theory and the calculation of matrix elements
Author(s): Bouchard, C; Chang, CC; Kurth, T; Orginos, K; Walker-Loud, A | Abstract: © 2017 American Physical Society. The Feynman-Hellmann theorem can be derived from the long Euclidean-time limit of
On the difficulty of computing higher-twist corrections
Abstract We discuss the evaluation of power corrections to hard scattering and decay processes for which an operator product expansion is applicable. The Wilson coefficient of the leading-twist
The subtraction contribution to muonic-hydrogen Lamb shift: a point for lattice QCD calculation of polarizability effect
The proton-polarizability contribution to the muonic-hydrogen Lamb shift is a major source of theoretical uncertainty in the extraction of the proton charge radius. An empirical evaluation of this
