Center for Theoretical and Computational Physics
A new Theory Center paper shows that the quasi-parton distribution functions (quasi-PDFs), recently introduced by X. Ji for the extraction of PDFs from the lattice, may be treated as hybrids of PDFs and primordial rest-frame momentum distributions of partons. This results in a complicated convolution structure that requires large momenta to get close to the physical PDF limit. A new approach is proposed based on the concept of "pseudo-PDFs," which are similar to the usual scale-dependent PDFs, with a spatial distance between quark fields serving as a scale parameter.
