    Probing transverse quark polarization in deep-inelastic leptoproduction

    The azimuthal dependence of hadrons produced in lepton scattering off a polarized hadron probes the quark transverse-spin distributions. In the calculation of the asymmetries, transverse momenta of quarks in the distribution and fragmentation functions must be incorporated. In addition to the sin(ϕ+ϕS)\sin (\phi + \phi_S) asymmetry for transversely polarized hadrons, known as the Collins effect, we find sin2ϕ\sin 2\phi asymmetries for both transversely and longitudinally polarized hadrons.Comment: 7 pages RevTe

    Prospects for spin physics in semi-inclusive processes

    Full text link
    I discuss inclusive and semi-inclusive lepton-hadron scattering emphasizing the importance of polarization in order to study various single or double spin asymmetries and the importance of particle identification and angular resolution in the dectection of final state particles to study azimuthal asymmetries. The observables obtained in this way enable a detailed study of quark and gluon correlations in hadrons.Comment: 15 pages LaTex, 20 figures using epsf.sty, revised layout, talk presented at the second ELFE Workshop, 23-27 September 1996, St. Malo, Franc

    Progress in agriculture and food issues in the TTIP talks will largely be determined by the level of ambition in the negotiations as a whole. If ambitions are modest, a low-level agreement could probably be reached that includes some limited commitments on agricultural market access and food regulations. These could include promises of mutual support in the area of opening up agricultural markets through the WTO and of further Transatlantic cooperation in trying to resolve conflicts over food regulations. Bolder ambitions would allow more scope for tackling the difficult problems, though at the cost of time. It would be unfortunate if the opportunity were not taken to make some significant progress in removing some longstanding irritants in the area of agricultural policy and food regulations: this is where the economic gains are likely to be significant and the spill-overs useful. This paper argues the case that it is worthwhile making the effort to secure a constructive and imaginative agreement on agriculture and food regulations in the TTIP. A fairly detailed suggestive list of potential sub-deals in agro-food, supported by the analysis in the paper, is the most concrete one of a series of policy conclusion
