Description

We present a statistical description of the hadron structures in terms of the parton gas on the light front. Specifically, the microcanonical molecular dynamics ensemble is generalized to preserve the light front 3-momentum in order to model the phase space distribution of partons confined inside a hardon. With only the light front kinetic energy, the joint longitudinal momentum fraction distribution of these partons can be deduced analytically. The parton distribution functions are then obtained as the marginal distribution of the joint distribution.
