Partonic state and single transverse spin asymmetry in Drell-Yan process
Single transverse-spin asymmetries have been studied intensively both in experiment and theory. Theoretically, two factorization approaches have been proposed. One is by using
Transverse spin and momentum correlations in quantum chromodynamics
The naive time reversal odd (‘T-odd’) parton distribution and fragmentation functions are explored. We use the spectator model framework to study flavour dependence of the Boer-Mulders (h1⊥ ) and
Generalized Universality for TMD Distribution Functions
Azimuthal asymmetries in high-energy processes, most pronounced showing up in combination with single or double (transverse) spin asymmetries, can be understood with the help of transverse momentum
Color Entanglement in Hadronic Processes for Transverse Momentum Dependent Parton Distribution Functions
In the description of protons, we go beyond the ordinary collinear parton distribution functions (PDFs), by including transverse momentum dependent PDFs (TMDs). As such, we become sensitive to
Color Effects for Transverse Momentum Dependent Parton Distribution Functions in Hadronic Processes
In the Drell–Yan process (DY) a quark and an antiquark, coming from two different protons, produce a colorless virtual photon. In the proton description, we include transverse momentum dependent
Single spin asymmetries in inclusive DIS and multi-parton correlations in the nucleon
Transverse single spin asymmetries in inclusive deep-inelastic lepton-nucleon scattering can be generated through multi-photon exchange between the leptonic and the hadronic part of the process. Here
Single transverse-spin asymmetry in Drell-Yan production at large and moderate transverse momentum
We study the single-transverse-spin asymmetry for the Drell-Yan process. We consider production of the lepton pair at large transverse momentum, q{sub perpendicular}{approx}Q, where Q is the pair's
Transverse single spin asymmetry AUTsin(ϕh−ϕS) for single hadron production in semi-inclusive DIS
In this paper we study the single spin asymmetry $A_{UT}^{\sin(\phi_h-\phi_S)}$ of a single hadron production in semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering (SIDIS) within the framework of transverse
Structure and spin of the nucleon
Parton distribution functions, describing longitudinal momentum, helicity and transversity distributions of quarks and gluons, have been recently generalized to account also for transverse degrees of


Transverse single spin asymmetries in Drell-Yan processes
Recently, it has been shown, contrary to previous beliefs, that the k? distribution of quarks in a transversely polarized proton can be asymmetric. This “Sivers effect” had already been used to
Estimate of the Collins fragmentation function in a chiral invariant approach
We predict the features of the Collins function, which describes the fragmentation of a transversely polarized quark into an unpolarized hadron, by modeling the fragmentation into pions at a low
Single spin asymmetries from a gluonic background in the Drell-Yan process.
We discuss the effects of so-called gluonic poles in twist-three hadronic matrix elements, as first considered by Qiu and Sterman, in the Drell-Yan process. These effects cannot be distinguished from
Single transverse-spin asymmetry in the Drell-Yan lepton angular distribution
We calculate a single transverse-spin asymmetry for the Drell-Yan lepton-pair's angular distribution in perturbative QCD. At leading order in the strong coupling constant, the asymmetry is expressed
