Nuclear Physics & RIKEN Theory Seminar

"Issues about partonic transverse momentum distributions"

Presented by Alessandro Bacchetta, Jefferson Lab

Friday, September 19, 2008, 2:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

Partonic transverse momentum distributions (TMDs) expose new aspects of the structure of the nucleon, not accessible by collinear parton distribution functions. They can be measured in semi-inclusive hard scattering experiments and require the extension of the theoretical ideas usually employed to collinear distribution functions. I will review some topics relevant for the theory and phenomenology of TMDs, focusing on a few crucial examples.
