Workshop 1


The Helicity Structure of the Nucleon

Back | Homepage

Location: Hamilton Room, Bldg. 555 (Chemistry)
Date: Monday, June 5, 2006  
Organizers: Christine Aidala, Jan Balewski, and Mike Miller
Local Contact: Christine Aidala  
Time: 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.  
Summary: The primary goal of the workshop is to discuss the current status of both experimental and theoretical work related to the helicity structure of the nucleon. New results are expected from RHIC, and there will also be reports on relevant DIS measurements. Discussion will include, among other topics, the extraction of polarized pdf's and the relationship of nucleon spin structure at soft and hard scales.
Workshop summary writeup: Steven D. Bass and Christine A. Aidala

One of ten national laboratories overseen and primarily funded by the Office of Science of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Brookhaven National Laboratory conducts research in the physical, biomedical, and environmental sciences, as well as in energy technologies and national security. Brookhaven Lab also builds and operates major scientific facilities available to university, industry and government researchers. Brookhaven is operated and managed for DOE’s Office of Science by Brookhaven Science Associates, a limited-liability company founded by Stony Brook University, the largest academic user of Laboratory facilities, and Battelle, a nonprofit, applied science and technology organization.
