Parton distributions and lattice-QCD calculations: Toward 3D structure

Large-momentum effective theory

Since the parton model was introduced by Feynman more than fifty years ago, we have learned much about the partonic structure of the proton through a large body of high-energy experimental data and

Concurrent approaches to Generalized Parton Distribution modeling: the pion’s case

The concept of Generalized Parton Distributions promises an understanding of the generation of the charge, spin, and energy-momentum structure of hadrons by quarks and gluons. Forthcoming

Investigating GPDs in the framework of the double distribution model

In this paper, we construct the generalized parton distribution (GPD) in terms of the kinematical variables x, ξ, t, using the double distribution model. By employing these functions, we could

Phenomenology of diphoton photoproduction at next-to-leading order

We develop the analysis of diphoton exclusive photoproduction in the kinematics where a collinear QCD factorization framework applies, namely nearly forward large invariant mass diphoton production.

A Guide to Light-Cone PDFs from Lattice QCD: An Overview of Approaches, Techniques, and Results

Within the theory of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), the rich structure of hadrons can be quantitatively characterized, among others, using a basis of universal nonperturbative functions: parton

Generalized Parton Distributions and their covariant extension : towards nucleon tomography

Generalized Parton Distributions (GPDs) encode the correlations between longitudinal momentum and transverse position of partons inside hadrons and can give access to a picture of the nucleon



Generalized parton distributions from nucleon form factor data

Abstract.We present a simple empirical parameterization of the x- and t-dependence of generalized parton distributions at zero skewness, using forward parton distributions as input. A fit to

Generalized Parton Distributions in Constituent Quark Models

Abstract:An approach is proposed to calculate Generalized Parton Distributions (GPDs) in a Constituent Quark Model (CQM) scenario. These off-diagonal distributions are obtained from momentum space

Vector-meson electroproduction at small Bjorken-x and generalized parton distributions

Abstract.We analyze electroproduction of light vector mesons ($V = \rho, \phi$) at small Bjorken-x in an approach that includes the gluonic generalized parton distributions and a partonic subprocess,

Double distributions and evolution equations

Applications of perturbative QCD to deeply virtual Compton scattering and hard exclusive meson electroproduction processes require a generalization of usual parton distributions for the case when

Helicity dependent and independent generalized parton distributions of the nucleon in lattice QCD

A complete description of the nucleon structure in terms of generalized parton distributions (GPDs) at twist 2 level requires the measurement/computation of the eight functions H, E, $\widetilde{H}$,

Moments of nucleon generalized parton distributions in lattice QCD

Calculation of the moments of generalized parton distributions in lattice QCD requires more powerful techniques than those previously used to calculate the moments of structure functions. Hence, we
