Workshop 6


Transverse Spin

Back | Homepage

Location: Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510 (Physics)
Date: Tuesday, June 6, 2006  
Organizers: Mickey Chiu, Renee Fatemi, Ralf Seidl, F. Yuan
Time: 9 a.m. to 4:55 p.m.  
Summary: Some of the more interesting nucleon spin structure phenomena recently has come from Transverse Spin Effects, with positive observations in (for example) SIDIS at JLAB and DESY, as well as in hadronic collisions at RHIC. With explanations arising from various sources, such as a transversity distribution coupled with a Collins or interference fragmentation, a Sivers function type effect, or perhaps higher twist effects, this is now a good time to review the current state of knowledge, as well as explore future possibilities, especially at the conclusion of a substantial transverse run at RHIC.

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.
