Light-Cone Representation of the Spin and Orbital Angular Momentum of Relativistic Composite Systems

• Published 2000

Abstract

The matrix elements of local operators such as the electromagnetic current, the energy momentum tensor, angular momentum, and the moments of structure functions have exact representations in terms of light-cone Fock state wavefunctions of bound states such as hadrons. We illustrate all of these properties by giving explicit light-cone wavefunctions for the… (More)
