Studying the Spin Structure of the Proton Using the Solenoidal Tracker at RHIC
The primary goal of RHIC is to produce nuclear matter under extremes of temperature and density sufficient to excite the QCD vacuum, resulting in the creation of a deconfined plasma of quarks and gluons. A second goal central to the RHIC scientific program is to advance the study of the spin structure of the proton significantly beyond what has been learned from deep inelastic scattering (DIS) measurements by studying spin asymmetries in strong processes involving the partonic constituents of polarized protons.
