Transverse Spin Structure of the Nucleon

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


We review the current status and future perspectives of theory and experiments of transverse spin phenomena in high-energy scattering processes off nucleon targets and related issues in nucleon structure and QCD. Systematic exploration of transverse spin effects requires measurements in polarized deep-inelastic scattering, polarized pp collisions, and e+e- annihilations. Sophisticated QCD-based techniques are also needed to analyze the experimental data sets.
