Nuclear Theory/RIKEN Seminar

"Jets as a probe of transverse spin physics"

Presented by Zhongbo Kang, UCLA

Friday, July 27, 2018, 2:00 pm — Building 510, CFNS Seminar Room 2-38

Jets are collimated spray of hadrons that are naturally produced in high energy colliders. They are powerful probes of many different aspects of QCD dynamics. In this talk, we will demonstrate how to use jets to explore the transverse momentum dependent (TMD) physics. A novel TMD framework to deal with back-to-back two particle correlations is presented, with which we could study the Sivers asymmetry for photon+jet or dijet production in transversely polarized proton-proton collisions. At the end of the talk, we also show how jet substructure could be used to explore the TMD fragmentation functions. We expect these studies to have important applications at RHIC in the future.
