Transversity distribution in spin asymmetries in semi-inclusive DIS and in the Drell-Yan process

Theoretic Aspects of Spin Physics


A review is given on single spin asymmetries in deep inelastic semi-inclusive scattering (SIDIS) and their possible theoretical understanding in the framework of ACD-induced factorization approach, wherefore predictions for transverisity from the chiral quark soliton model are used. Arising difficulties to interpret most recent SIDIS data, and the possibility to access the transversity distribution in the Drell-Yan process are discussed.
