A perturbative expansion for bound states starts with a lowest order approximation that has a non-perturbative wave function, with all powers in the coupling $\alpha$.
The distinction between lowest and higher orders is blurred since contributions of finite order in $\alpha$ may be assigned to either one. A criterion beyond powers of $\alpha$ is needed to fully define a perturbative expansion...

We explore the convergence of the light-front coupled-cluster (LFCC) method in the context of two-dimensional quenched scalar Yukawa theory. This theory is simple enough for higher-order LFCC calculations to be relatively straightforward. The quenching is to maintain stability; the spectrum of the full theory with pair creation and annihilation is unbounded from below. The basic interaction...

Recently, it has been shown that a class of coordinate-space-separated non-local hadronic matrix elements, computable directly in lattice QCD, can be factorized into parton distribution functions with calculable coefficients, in the same manner as the hadronic cross sections measured in an experiment [Phys.Rev.Lett. 120 (2018) no.2, 022003]. The pion and kaon, the lightest pseudo scalar...

Pions have long been associated with being the lightest bound state made of quarks, antiquarks and gluons (partons), as well as being the Goldstone boson produced from the breaking of effective chiral symmetry.

We study a pion Bethe-Salpeter (BS) amplitude model in Minkowski space inspired by Lattice QCD results for the quark self-energy for space like momentum. The model is based on the assumption of the Godstone boson nature of the pion and the pseudoscalar BS vertex is chosen to match the scalar part of the self-energy. The model allows a Nakanishi representation of the BS ampliude and produce...

A new set of TMD sum rules is derived by relating integrals of the semi-inclusive quark-quark correlator to the fully dressed quark propagator. A complete set of momentum sum rules is obtained for the quark-quark TMDs up to twist-3 level, and for quark-gluon-quark TMDs up to twist-2. The technique is then extended to di-quark TMDs. Applications to inclusive DIS and semi-inclusive...

Since all produced hadrons are charged, we expect that the...
