We continue to review all events currently planned for the next sixty days and organizers will be notified if their event must be canceled, postponed, or held remotely. Please, check back on Indico during this time for updates regarding your meeting specifics.
As DOE O 142.3A, Unclassified Foreign Visits and Assignments Program (FVA) applies not only to physical access to DOE sites, technologies, and equipment, but also information, all remote events hosted by Fermilab must comply with FVA requirements. This includes participant registration and agenda review. Please contact Melissa Ormond, FVA Manager, with any questions.


ZOOM meetings Lab policy: You absolutely must not post Zoom meeting IDs on any public website unless you set a password to protect the meeting/event. Of course, do not post the password on any public website, either.

3D proton tomography at the EIC: TMD gluon distributions

Not scheduled



Dr Francesco Giovanni Celiberto (University of Pavia and INFN)


The search for evidence of New Physics is in the viewfinder of current and forthcoming analyses at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and at new-generation hadron, lepton and lepton-hadron colliders. This is the best time to shore up our knowledge of strong interactions though and, more in particular, of the hadron structure in terms of parton distributions.
Although significant steps toward the formal definition of quark transverse-momentum dependent distribution functions (TMDs) and their extraction from experimental data through global fits has been made in the last years, the gluon-TMD field represents an almost unknown territory.
With the advent of the Electron-Ion Collider (EIC), a systematic study of observables very sensitive to gluon dynamics will become feasible, thus offering us a unique chance of deepening our knowledge of gluon TMDs, a largely unexplored territory particularly at low-$x$.
With the aim of fulfilling the need for a flexible model suited to phenomenology, we present a common framework for all $T$-even and gluon TMDs at twist-2, calculated in a spectator model for the parent nucleon and encoding effective small-$x$ effects from the BFKL resummation. At variance with respect to previous works, our approach encodes a flexible parametrization for the spectator-mass spectral density, allowing us to improve the description in the small-$x$ region.
An extension of our model to include twist-2 $T$-odd gluon TMDs is underway.
All these prospective developments are relevant in the exploration of the gluon dynamics inside nucleons and nuclei, which constitutes one of the major goals of the EIC project.
We believe that the inclusion of these topics in the SnowMass 2021 scientific program would accelerate progress of our understanding of both formal and phenomenological aspects of the hadron structure in wider kinematic ranges.
