Perturbative Renormalization of quasi-PDFs

  title={Perturbative Renormalization of quasi-PDFs},
  author={Martha Constantinou and H. Panagopoulos},
In this paper we present results for the renormalization of gauge invariant nonlocal fermion operators which contain a Wilson line, to one-loop level in lattice perturbation theory. Our calculations have been performed for Wilson/clover fermions and a wide class of Symanzik improved gluon actions. The extended nature of such ‘long-link’ operators results in a nontrivial renormalization, including contributions which diverge linearly as well as logarithmically with the lattice spacing, along…

Nonperturbative renormalization of nonlocal quark bilinears for quasi-PDFs on the lattice using an auxiliary field

Quasi-PDFs provide a path toward an ab initio calculation of parton distribution functions (PDFs) using lattice QCD. One of the problems faced in calculations of quasi-PDFs is the renormalization of

Abstract We compute the master integrals for the two-loop QCD corrections to quark quasi parton distribution functions (PDFs) in the large momentum effective theory (LaMET). With a proper canonical

Perturbative and Nonperturbative Renormalization in Lattice QCD

We investigate the perturbative and nonperturbative renormalization of composite operators in lattice QCD restricting ourselves to operators that are bilinear in the quark fields (quark-antiquark
