We studied the impact of future Electron Ion Collider inclusive and semi-inclusive polarized deep inelastic scattering data will have on the determination of the helicity parton distributions. Supplementing the Monte Carlo sampling variant of the DSSV14 analysis with pseudo-data on polarized inclusive and semi-inclusive electron-proton deep inelastic scattering with updated uncertainty estimates and for two different center-of-mass-system energies, $\sqrt{s}=44.7$ GeV and $\sqrt{s}=141.4$ GeV… 

Self-consistent determination of proton and nuclear PDFs at the Electron Ion Collider

We quantify the impact of unpolarized lepton-proton and lepton-nucleus inclusive deep-inelastic scattering (DIS) cross section measurements from the future Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) on the proton

Electron-ion collider in China

Lepton scattering is an established ideal tool for studying inner structure of small particles such as nucleons as well as nuclei. As a future high energy nuclear physics project, an Electron-ion

Scope and limitations of a string theory dual description of the proton structure

Symmetric and antisymmetric structure functions from electromagnetic deep inelastic scattering of charged leptons off spin-1/2 hadrons are investigated in the framework of a top-down holographic dual

Inclusive-jet and dijet production in polarized deep inelastic scattering

We present the calculation for single-inclusive jet production in (longitudinally) polarized deep-inelastic lepton-nucleon scattering at next-to-next-to leading order (NNLO) accuracy, based on the

Role of the chiral anomaly in polarized deeply inelastic scattering: Finding the triangle graph inside the box diagram in Bjorken and Regge asymptotics

We revisit the role of the chiral "triangle" anomaly in deeply inelastic scattering (DIS) of electrons off polarized protons employing a powerful worldline formalism. We demonstrate how the triangle

ATHENA detector proposal — a totally hermetic electron nucleus apparatus proposed for IP6 at the Electron-Ion Collider

ATHENA has been designed as a general purpose detector capable of delivering the full scientific scope of the Electron-Ion Collider. Careful technology choices provide fine tracking and momentum

JAM small-$x$ helicity phenomenology

We present the first-ever description the world data on the g 1 structure function at small Bjorken x using evolution equations in x derived from first principles QCD. Using a MonteCarlo analysis

Structure of the nucleon at leading and subleading twist in the covariant parton model

The covariant parton model is generalized to describe quark correlators in a systematic way. Previous results are reproduced for the T-even leading-twist transverse momentum dependent parton

The Electron-Ion Collider -- A U.S. facility for the European community to explore the mysteries of the building blocks of matter

This document is submitted as input to the NuPECC Long Range Plan 2024 by three European members of the EIC Users Group Steering Committee (Vice Chair, one “at-large” member, and the EU



Semi-inclusive deep-inelastic scattering, parton distributions, and fragmentation functions at a future electron-ion collider

We present a quantitative assessment of the impact a future electron-ion collider would have in the determination of parton distribution functions in the proton and parton-to-hadron fragmentation

Helicity parton distributions at a future electron-ion collider: A quantitative appraisal

We present a quantitative assessment of the impact a future electron-ion collider will have on determinations of helicity quark and gluon densities and their contributions to the proton spin. Our

Unveiling the proton spin decomposition at a future electron-ion collider

We present a detailed assessment of how well a future electron-ion collider could constrain helicity parton distributions in the nucleon and, therefore, unveil the role of the intrinsic spin of

Extraction of spin-dependent parton densities and their uncertainties

We discuss techniques and results for the extraction of the nucleon's spin-dependent parton distributions and their uncertainties from data for polarized deep-inelastic lepton-nucleon and

We investigate the feasibility of constraining parton distribution functions in the proton through a comparison with data on semi-inclusive deep-inelastic lepton-nucleon scattering. Specifically, we

Evidence is found for a rather small gluon polarization in the nucleon, over a limited region of momentum fraction, and for interesting flavor patterns in the polarized sea.
