for the Belle Collaboration

SIDIS experiments (HERMES and COMPASS) measure dq(x) together with either Collins Fragmentation function or Interference Fragmentation function

There are always 2 unknown functions involved which cannot be measured independently

RHIC measures the same combinations of quark Distribution (DF) and Fragmentation Functions (FF) plus unpolarized DF q(x)

Universality appears to be proven

in LO by Collins and Metz:

[PRL93:(2004)252001 ]

The Spin dependent Fragmentation function analysis yields information on

the Collins and the Interference Fragmentation function !

Double ratio method:

Pros: Acceptance cancels out

Cons: Works only if effects are small (both gluon radiation and signal)

Pros: Gluon radiation cancels out exactly

Cons: Acceptance effects remain

Subtraction method:

2 method gives very small difference in the result

measurements of chiral-odd fragmentation functions at Belle

- Asymmetries do cancel out for MC
- Double ratios of p+p+/p-p- compatible to zero
- Mixed events also show zero result
- Asymmetry reconstruction works well for t MC
(weak decays)

- Single hemisphere analysis yields zero
Double ratios are safe to use

- uds MC (pp-pairs)
- charm MC (pp-pairs)
- Data (p+p+/p-p-)

Double Ratio vs Subtraction Method:

Preliminary

Systematic errors

R – S < 0.002

- The difference was
assigned as a systematic

error.

measurements of chiral-odd fragmentation functions at Belle

Preliminary

- Low thrust contains radiative effects
- Collins effect vanishes
Strong experimental indication that double ratio method works

measurements of chiral-odd fragmentation functions at Belle

- Weak (parity violating) decays could also create asymmetries
(seen in ttppnn,

overall t dilution 5%)

- Especially low dilution in combined
z-bins with large pion asymmetry

- Double ratios from charm MC compatible to zero
- Charm decays cannot explain large double ratios seen in the data
