Gluon distribution and fragmentation functions are fundamental quantities in the study of deep inelastic scattering processes. In fact, together with their quark and antiquark analogues, these process-independent quantities describe the soft parts of the scattering or, in other words, the deep structure of the hadrons. The partonic (distribution and fragmentation) functions cannot yet be calculated from first principles because we lack the non-perturbative treatment of the strong interactions… CONTINUE READING
