We review the description of inclusive single unpolarized light hadron production using fragmentation functions in the framework of the factorization theorem. We summarize the factorization of quantities into perturbatively calculable quantities and these universal fragmentation functions, and then discuss some improvements beyond the standard fixed order approach. We discuss the extraction of fragmentation functions for light charged and neutral hadrons using these theoretical tools through… 

Impact of inclusive hadron production data on nuclear gluon PDFs

A precise knowledge of nuclear parton distribution functions (nPDFs) is — among other things — important for the unambiguous interpretation of hard process data taken in pA and AA collisions at the

A determination of the fragmentation functions of pions, kaons, and protons with faithful uncertainties

We present NNFF1.0, a new determination of the fragmentation functions (FFs) of charged pions, charged kaons, and protons/antiprotons from an analysis of single-inclusive hadron production data in

Study of Vector Meson Fragmentation Using a Broken SU(3) Model

Inclusive hadro-production in e+e- annihilation processes is examined to study the fragmentation process. A broken SU(3) model is used to determine the quark and gluon fragmentation functions of

Interplay of threshold resummation and hadron mass corrections in deep inelastic processes

We discuss hadron mass corrections and threshold resummation for deep-inelastic scattering lN-->l'X and semi-inclusive annihilation e+e- → hX processes, and provide a prescription how to consistently

First NNLO fragmentation functions of KS0 and Λ/Λ¯ and their uncertainties in the presence of hadron mass corrections

The current paper presents a determination of $K^0_S$ and $\Lambda/\bar{\Lambda}$ fragmentation functions (FFs) from QCD analysis of single-inclusive electron-positron annihilation process (SIA). Our

Revisiting the D-meson hadroproduction in general-mass variable flavour number scheme

A bstractWe introduce a novel realization of the open heavy-flavour hadroproduction in general-mass variable flavour number scheme at next-to-leading order in perturbative QCD. The principal novelty

Antenna subtraction at NNLO with identified hadrons

: We extend the antenna subtraction method to include hadron fragmentation processes up to next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) in QCD in e + e − collisions. To handle collinear singularities



Confronting fragmentation function universality with single hadron inclusive production at HERA and e + e - colliders

Predictions for light charged hadron production data in the current fragmentation region of deeply inelastic scattering from the H1 and ZEUS experiments are calculated using perturbative quantum

QCD analysis of unpolarized and polarized Λ-baryon production in leading and next-to-leading order

We analyze experimental data for the production ofbaryons in e + e − annihilation in terms of scale dependent, QCD evolved, � fragmentation functions. Apart from the vast majority of the data for

Measurement of the longitudinal, transverse and asymmetry fragmentation functions at LEP

AbstractThe fragmentation function for the process e+e−→h+X, whereh represents a hadron, may be decomposed into transverse, longitudinal and asymmetric contributions by analysis of the distribution

Statistical approach for unpolarized fragmentation functions for the octet baryons

A statistical model for the parton distributions in the nucleon has proven its efficiency in the analysis of deep inelastic scattering data, so we propose to extend this approach to the description
