Collins Fragmentation and the Single Transverse Spin Asymmetry

Preprint English OPEN
Yuan, Feng; Zhou, Jian;
(2009)

We study the Collins mechanism for the single transverse spin asymmetry in the collinear factorization approach. The correspondent twist-three fragmentation function is identified. We show that the Collins function calculated in this approach is universal. We further ex... View more
