Description

We discuss the impact of double parton scattering at the LHC. In particular we focus on the impact of polarization, arising from the spin correlations between two partons inside an unpolarized proton. We demonstrate that the effects can be large in certain kinematic regions and processes and compare our results to data. We further discuss angular asymmetries and similarities as well as differences to the more developed field of spin asymmetries in transverse momentum dependent single parton scattering.
