Abstract: Polarized deep-inelastic scattering data on longitudinally polarized hydrogen and deuterium targets have been used to determine double-spin asymmetries of cross sections. Inclusive and semi-inclusive asymmetries for the production of positive and negative pions from hydrogen were obtained in a reanalysis of previously published data. Inclusive and semi-inclusive asymmetries for the production of negative and positive pions and kaons were measured on a polarized deuterium target. The separate helicity densities… Show more

“…Although the overall quark contribution (∆Σ = ∆q + ∆q) has been well-determined through DIS experiments (in the range 10 −3 < x < 1), the contributions from sea quarks separated by flavor (determined through SIDIS experiments) are comparatively poorly known.

“…These high Q 2 data probe the parton structure of the proton at W mass scale and provide an important addition to our understanding of the anti-quark parton helicity distribution functions at an intermediate Bjorken The determination of the contributions of partons to the spin of the proton has inspired significant theoretical and experimental effort for several decades [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13]. The quark contribution to the nucleon spin has been deduced through measurements in polarized inclusive deep-inelastic scattering (DIS) and semi-inclusive deepinelastic scattering (SIDIS) experiments [6,[12][13][14][15]. Although the overall quark contribution (∆Σ = ∆q + ∆q) has been well-determined through DIS experiments (in the range 10 −3 < x < 1), the contributions from sea quarks separated by flavor (determined through SIDIS experiments) are comparatively poorly known.…”

“…Important insights have been provided through semiinclusive deep-inelastic scattering (SIDIS) experiments on phenomena such as the SU (2) flavor asymmetry in the proton sea [3] and the ratio of strange to nonstrange quark distributions [4,5]. From experiments with polarized targets, SIDIS data have also provided fascinating glimpses of the possible flavor asymmetry in the polarized light-antiquark sea [6], while kaon production data has fueled the recent controversy concerning the sign of the polarized strange sea [7][8][9]. Furthermore, detection of forward baryons (in the center of mass frame) in the target fragmentation region of SIDIS is a potentially important avenue for extracting information on the pion cloud of the nucleon or the structure of the virtual pion itself [10][11][12][13].…”
