Description
One of the big open challenges in contemporary particle physics is the quest for the three-dimensional structure of the proton, a principal building block of all visible matter. According to the theory of Quantum Chromodynamics, which is well-established since the mid-seventies, the proton is a composite particle built from elementary point-like particles known as quarks and gluons, or collectively 'partons'. A simple picture in which these quarks and gluons are quasi-free and move alongside their parent proton, is often very successful in describing experiments at particle colliders. However, this so-called 'collinear' framework is challenged in many experiment...
