Helicity Formalism and Spin Asymmetries in Hadronic Processes


We present a generalized QCD factorization scheme for the high energy inclusive polarized process, (A, S_A) + (B, S_B) -> C + X, including all intrinsic partonic motions. This introduces many non-trivial azimuthal phases and several new spin and k_T dependent soft functions. The formal expressions for single and double spin asymmetries are discussed. Numerical results for A_N[p(transv. polarized) p -> pi + X] are presented.Comment: 8 pages, 4 ps figures, uses ws-procs9x6.cls and rotating_pr.sty (included). Talk delivered by F.
