Particles, Astrophysics, and Nuclear Physics Seminar

Monday, May 24, 2010
2:00pm – 3:30pm

Storrs Campus
Gant Science Complex P-121

Dr. Barbara Pasquini, from the Universita di Pavia, will present, “Generalized Parton Distributions and Transverse Momentum Dependent Parton Distributions in Light-Cone Quark Models.” I will discuss the partonic structure of the nucleon in terms of two general types of parton distributions: generalized parton distributions (GPDs) and transverse momentum dependent parton distributions (TMDs). In particular, I will discuss physical interpretation and basic properties of these distributions, paying special attention to the modeling within light-cone quark models and to the spin-orbit and spin-spin correlations encoded in these distributions. Furthermore, I will present results for all leading-twist azimuthal spin asymmetries in semi-inclusive deep-inelastic scattering due to T-even TMDs, comparing the predictions on the basis of a light-cone quark model with available experimental data from CLAS, COMPASS and HERMES.
