Rencontres de Physique des Particules 2020


L'édition 2020 de la Rencontre de Physique des Particules aura lieu à l'École polytechnique, du mercredi 29 janvier à 10h30 au vendredi 31 janvier à 16h00. Les inscriptions sont ouvertes jusqu'au 15 janvier 2020.

Nous avons prévu un certain nombre d'exposés de revue et une session de discussion, ainsi que l'organisation d'une assemblée générale sur les perspectives de notre discipline.

Nous vous invitons à soumettre une proposition d'exposé (20 minutes) dans la rubrique "Abstract submission". La date limite pour l'envoi des abstracts est fixée au 15 janvier 2020.

The 2020 edition of the Rencontre de Physique des Particules will be held at École polytechnique, from Wednesday 29 January at 10.30am to Friday 31 January at 4pm. Registration will be open until January 15, 2020.

We have foreseen a number of review talks, a discussion session, as well as the organisation of a Round Table on the status and perspectives of our field.  

We invite you to submit an abstract for a talk (20 minutes) in the section "Abstract submission". The deadline for abstract submission is January 15, 2020.

This event is supported by CNRS Labex P2IO, GDR Intensity Frontier and GDR QCD.

        Expression for the potential angular momentum within the scalar diquark model

        One of the challenges of both nuclear and hadronic physics is to fully
        understand the structure of nucleons and nuclei through the measurements
        of its structure functions. In particular, possible future experiments at
        the EIC are aimed to understand the origin of the spin of the proton. This
        requires a proper decomposition of the nucleons total angular momentum
        into an orbital motion and intrinsic spin. The most common decompositions
        of angular momentum are the Jaffe-Manohar (canonical) and Ji (kinetic)
        decompositions, which differ by the so-called "potential angular momentum"
        and that depend on how the contributions are attributed to quarks and

        Even if some lattice calculations has shown that difference between the
        decompositions is non-zero, we justify a non-vanishing potential angular
        momentum using perturbation theory within a simple scalar diquark model at
        two-loop level, and motivate the interpretation of such a difference as
        originating from the torque exerted by initial or final state interactions
        on the struck quark.
