The study of the quantum phase-space distribution of quarks and gluons inside nucleons in terms of TMDs and GPDs has become, in the last decade, a cutting-edge research field in hadron physics. These non-perturbative objects, respectively measurable in semi-inclusive deep-inelastic scattering and exclusive processes, allow to obtain 3-dimensional representations of the nucleon in the momentum and spatial coordinates as well as indirect insights into the still unknown parton orbital angular momentum. The HERMES experiment at HERA has been a precursor in this field. A selection of HERMES results sensitive to both TMDs and GPDs is presented.

Abstract

The study of the quantum phase-space distribution of quarks and gluons inside nucleons in terms of TMDs and GPDs has become, in the last decade, a cutting-edge research field in hadron physics. These non-perturbative objects, respectively measurable in semi-inclusive deep-inelastic scattering and exclusive processes, allow to obtain 3-dimensional representations of the nucleon in the momentum and spatial coordinates as well as indirect insights into the still unknown parton orbital angular momentum. The HERMES experiment at HERA has been a precursor in this field. A selection of HERMES results sensitive to both TMDs and GPDs is presented.
