The relations between TMDs and PDFs are obtained from the symmetry requirement: relativistic covariance combined with rotationally symmetric parton motion in the nucleon rest frame. This requirement is applied in the covariant parton model. Using the usual PDFs as an input, we are obtaining predictions for some polarized and unpolarized TMDs.

The polarized TMDs in the covariant parton model approach

We derive relations between polarized transverse momentum dependent distribution functions (TMDs) and the usual parton distribution functions (PDFs) in the 3D covariant parton model, which follow

TMDs in the bag model

Leading and subleading twist transverse momentum dependent parton distribution functions (TMDs) are studied in a quark model framework provided by the bag model. A complete set of relations among

Quark orbital angular momentum: can we learn about it from GPDs and TMDs?

It is known how to access information on quark orbital angular momentum from generalized parton distribution functions, in a certain specified framework. It is intuitively expected, that such

Statistical parton distributions, TMD, positivity and all that

We briefly recall the main physical features of the parton distributions in the quantum statistical picture of the nucleon. Some predictions from a next-to-leading order QCD analysis are successfully

Recent progress in the statistical approach of parton distributions

We recall the physical features of the parton distributions in the quantum statistical approach of the nucleon. Some predictions from a next‐to‐leading order QCD analysis are compared to recent

Semi-inclusive DIS cross sections and spin asymmetries in the quantum statistical parton distributions approach

We consider the extension of the statistical parton distributions to include their transverse momentum dependence, by using two different methods, one is based on our quantum statistical approach,
