Abstract

The roles of the Drell-Yan experiments in studying the Transverse-Momentum- Dependent (TMD) parton distributions are discussed. Recent results from the Fermilab E866 experiment on the angular distributions of Drell-Yan dimuons in p + p and p + d at 800 GeV/c are presented. These data are compared with the pion-induced Drell-Yan data, and with models which attribute the cos 2φ azimuthal distribution to the presence of the transverse-momentum-dependent Boer-Mulders structure function . Constraints on the magnitude of the seaquark h- structure functions are obtained. Future prospects for studying the TMDs with Drell-Yan experiments at Fermilab and J-PARC are also discussed.
