Physicists Reveal the Hidden Interiors of Gas Giants

In astronomy we love focusing on the bigger picture. We’re searching for exoplanets in the vast hope that we may begin to paint a picture of how planetary systems form; We’re using the Hubble Space Telescope to peer into the earliest history of the cosmos; And we’re building gravitational wave detectors in order to better…

Nucleon Spin and Momentum Decomposition Using Lattice QCD Simulations

Nucleon Spin and Momentum Decomposition Using Lattice QCD Simulations | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
We determine within lattice QCD the nucleon spin carried by valence and sea quarks and gluons. The calculation is performed using an ensemble of gauge configurations with two degenerate light quarks with mass fixed to approximately reproduce the physical pion mass. We find that the total angular momentum carried by the quarks in the nucleon is ${J}_{u+d+s}=0.408(61{)}_{\text{stat}}(48{)}_{\text{syst}}$ and the gluon contribution is ${J}_{g}=0.133(11{)}_{\text{stat}}(14{)}_{\text{syst}}$, giving a total of ${J}_{N}=0.54(6{)}_{\text{stat}}(5{)}_{\text{syst}}$ that is consistent with the spin sum. For the quark intrinsic spin contribution, we obtain $\frac{1}{2}\mathrm{\ensuremath{\Delta}}{\mathrm{\ensuremath{\Sigma}}}_{u+d+s}=0.201(17{)}_{\text{stat}}(5{)}_{\text{syst}}$. All quantities are given in the modified minimal subtraction scheme at 2 GeV. The quark and gluon momentum fractions are also computed and add up to $⟨x{⟩}_{u+d+s}+⟨x{⟩}_{g}=0.804(121{)}_{\text{stat}}(95{)}_{\text{syst}}+0.267(12{)}_{\text{stat}}(10{)}_{\text{syst}}=1.07(12{)}_{\text{stat}}(10{)}_{\text{syst}}$, thus satisfying the momentum sum.
