One-loop corrections to single spin asymmetries at twist-3 in Drell-Yan processes

We study single spin asymmetries at one-loop accuracy in Drell-Yan processes in which one of the initial hadrons is transversely polarized. The spin-dependent part of differential cross-sections can

Global analysis of the Sivers functions at NLO+NNLL in QCD

We perform global fit to the quark Sivers function within the transverse momentum dependent (TMD) factorization formalism in QCD. We simultaneously fit Sivers asymmetry data from Semi-Inclusive Deep



Evolution of twist-3 multiparton correlation functions relevant to single transverse-spin asymmetry

We construct two sets of twist-3 correlation functions that are responsible for generating the novel single transverse-spin asymmetry in the QCD collinear factorization approach. We derive evolution

QCD Evolution of the Transverse Momentum Dependent Correlations - eScholarship

We study the QCD evolution for the twist-three quark-gluon correlation functions associated with the transverse momentum odd quark distributions. Different from that for the leading twist quark

Scale dependence of twist-three contributions to single spin asymmetries

We reexamine the scale dependence of twist-three correlation functions relevant for the single transverse spin asymmetry in the framework of collinear factorization. Evolution equations are derived

Polarized structure functions in QCD

Hadron spin physics is now one of the most active fields of physics. Especially in the last ten years, great progress has been made both theoretically and experimentally that has considerably

Conformal invariance and pion wave functions of nonleading twist

The restrictions are studied for the general structure of pion wave functions of twist 3 and twist 4 imposed by the conformal symmetry and the equations of motion. A systematic expansion of wave

Q 2 evolution of chiral-odd twist-3 distribution e(x,Q 2 )

We study the $Q^2$ dependence of the chiral-odd twist-3 distribution $e(x,Q^2)$.The anomalous dimension matrix for the corresponding twist-3 operators is calculated in the one-loop level. This study

Single transverse spin asymmetries in hadronic pion production

We analyze single transverse-spin asymmetries for hadronic pion production at large transverse momenta using QCD factorization. In the large ${x}_{F}$ region, leading contributions to the asymmetries
