QCD and Hadron Structure

Longitudinal and transverse angular momentum of the proton


  • Simonetta LIUTI

Primary authors


Understanding the spin structure of the proton as it emerges from the combined spin and orbital angular momentum of its quark and gluon constituents,has been a central question in QCD, motivating dedicated experimental and theoretical investigations from JLab to the future EIC.In this talk we show a new avenue to obtain a decomposition of both longitudinal and transverse nucleon angular momentum in its spin and orbital components using the QCD equations of motion and Lorentz invariance relations
