Proton Spin Structure at PHENIX Heavy Flavors Prompt Photon Production
Nucleon Spin Structure Gluons are polarized (G) Sea quarks are polarized: For complete description include parton orbital angular momentum LZ: 1989 EMC (CERN): =0.120.090.14 Spin Crisis Simple parton model: Determination of G and q-bar is the main goal of longitudinal spin program at RHIC
Polarized PDFs from DIS Asymmetry Analysis Collaboration M. Hirai, S. Kumano and N. Saito, PRD (2004) • Valence distributions well determined • Sea Distribution poorly constrained • Gluon can be either positive, 0, negative!
New experimental tool: polarized pp collider Utilizes strongly interacting probes • Probes gluon directly • Higher s clean pQCD interpretation • Elegant way to explore guark and anti-quark polarizations through W production • Polarized Gluon Distribution Measurements (G(x)): • Use a variety of probes • Access to different gluon momentum fraction x • Different probes – different systematics • Use different energies s • Access to different gluon momentum fraction x

0cross section at 200GeV p0 Dg2 DgDq Dq2 arXiv:0704.3599 [hep-ex] NLO pQCD calculations are consistent with cross-section measurements
p0 ALL PHENIX Preliminary Run6 (s=200 GeV) Statatistical uncertainties are on level to distinguish “std” and “0” scenarios 5 10 pT(GeV) GRSV model: “G = 0”: G(Q2=1GeV2)=0.1 “G = std”: G(Q2=1GeV2)=0.4 Run3,4,5: PRL 93, 202002; PRD 73, 091102; hep-ex-0704.3599
Relationship between pT and xgluon • NLO pQCD: 0 pT=29 GeV/c • GRSV model: G(xgluon=0.020.3) ~ 0.6G(xgluon =01 ) • Note: the relationship between pT and xgluon is model dependent • Each pT bin corresponds to a wide range in xgluon, heavily overlapping with other pT bins • Data is not very sensitive to variation of G(xgluon) within measured range • Any quantitative analysis assumes some G(xgluon) shape Log10(xgluon)
Sensitivity of p0 ALL to DG Scaling Errors not included present x-range xDG(x) GRSV std x • “std” scenario, G(Q2=1GeV2)=0.4, is excluded by data on >3 sigma level: 2(std)2min>9 • Only exp. stat. uncertainties are included (the effect of syst. uncertainties is expected to be small in the final results) • Theoretical uncertainties are not included
Global Analysis One of the attempts of global analysis by AAC Collaboration using PHENIX 0 Run5-Preliminary data Now Run5-Final and Run6-Preliminary 0 and Run5-Preliminary jet data are available • Results from various channels combined into single results for G(x) • Correlations with other PDFs for each channel properly accounted • Every single channel result is usually smeared over x global analysis can do deconvolution (map of G vs x) based on various channel results • NLO pQCD framework can (should!) be used • Global analysis framework already exist for pol. DIS data and being developed to include RHIC pp data, by different groups
ΔG(x) C from Gehrmann Stirling Extending x-range is crucial present x-range xDG(x) GSC: G(xgluon= 01) = 1 G(xgluon= 0.020.3) ~ 0 GRSV-0: G(xgluon= 01) = 0 G(xgluon= 0.020.3) ~ 0 GRSV-std:G(xgluon= 01) = 0.4 G(xgluon= 0.020.3) ~ 0.25 x 0.3 GSC-NLO: ΔG = ∫0.02ΔG(x)dx ~ small0 Much of the first moment ΔG = ∫ΔG(x)dx might emerge from low x! GSC-NLO: ΔG = ∫ΔG(x)dx = 1.0 GSC-NLO GSC: G(xgluon= 01) = 1 GRSV-0: G(xgluon= 01) = 0 GRSV-std:G(xgluon= 01) = 0.4 GSC: G(xgluon= 01) = 1 GRSV-0: G(xgluon= 01) = 0 GRSV-std:G(xgluon= 01) = 0.4

Extend x Range Extend to higher x at s = 62.4 GeV Extend to lower x at s = 500 GeV • To measure DG, need as wide an x range as possible. • Planned Upgrades will help (see later in this talk) • By measuring at different center of mass energies, we can reach different x ranges. • We can extend our x coverage towards lower x at s = 500 GeV. Expected to start in 2009. • We can extend our x coverage towards higher x at s = 62.4 GeV. Run6 present x-range s = 200 GeV
p0 ALL @ s=62.4 GeV GRSV: M. Gluck, E. Reya, M. Stratmann, and W. Vogelsang, Phys. Rev. D 53 (1996) 4775. • Short run with longitudinal polarized protonsALL • Grey band: systematic uncertainty due to Relative Luminosity
Comparison with 200 GeV • At fixed xT, p0 cross section is 2 orders of magnitude higher at 62.4 GeV than at 200 GeV • Converting to xT, we can get a better impression of the significance of the s=62.4 GeV data set, when compared with the Run5 final data set.

Sign Ambiguity Hard Scattering Process p0 DG2 DGDq Dq2 • Dominance of two gluon interaction at low pT present p0 ALL data cannot determine sign of DG. • Solution: • Higher pT higher FOM (P4L) • Look to other probes: • Charged pions • Direct Photon
Charged pion ALL Fraction of pion production • Charged pions above 4.7 GeV identified with RICH. • At higher pT, qg interactions become dominant and so DqDg term is ALL becomes significant allowing access to the sign of DG

Spin structure of the quark sea Hermes: Phys.Rev.Lett 92 (2004) 012005 x Dd LO extraction from SIDIS x Dd • How does the spin gluon field “feed down” to the quark sea? Gluons are polarized (G) Sea quarks are polarized:
Flavor separation of q and q sea Produced in pure V-A Quark helicities fixed AL • Inclusive single spin muon asymmetries (from W’s) is a good probe of Dq/q, Dq/q. • Complete theoretical treatment from first principles by Nadolsky and Yuan using re-summation and NLO techniques [NuclPhysB 666(2003) 31]. • Does not suffer from scale uncertainties pTm • W production • Produced in parity violating V-A process • Chirality / helicity of quarks defined • Couples to weak charge • Flavor almost fixed: flavor analysis possible • Experimentally clean measurement . • AL is parity violating → no false physics asymmetries. • Does not rely on knowledge of fragmentation functions Requires high luminosity 500GeV running + high rate muon trigger
Complimentary measurements PHENIX vs HERMES SIDIS: large x-coverage uncertainties from knowing fragmentation functions W-physics: limited x-coverage High Q2 theoretically clean No FF-info needed
Summary • RHIC is novel machine: provides collisions of polarized protons at high energies • High enough s NLO pQCD is applicable • Strongly interacting probes can be used to study nucleon structure • PHENIX is well suited to the study of spin physics with a wide variety of probes. • Inclusive neutral pion data for ALL has reached statistical significance to constrain ΔG in a limited x-range (~0.02-0.3). • DG is consistent with zero in the measured region, but theoretical uncertainties are high. • Extending the x-coverage is crucial (higher/lower energy, upgrades) • DG is also being probed with charged pions, photons, etas, heavy flavor via muons and electrons, multi-particle “jets” … • Anti-quark helicity distribution via W decay • PHENIX has an upgrade program that will give us the triggers and vertex information that we need for precise future measurements of DG, Dq and new physics at higher luminosity and energy
