Quark pseudo-distributions (pseudo-PDFs) are a recently introduced concept that generalizes the usual parton distributions (PDFs) for situations where the separation between the quarks is not on the light cone. The short-distance behavior of the pseudo-PDFs from the gluonic corrections has just been worked out at the one-loop order. These results will be used in future extractions of the PDFs from lattice calculations.
