Generalized Parton Distributions (GPDs) have become a major topic in the field of hadronic physics and nucleon structure. They parameterize the momentum of the quarks and gluons momentum in correlation with their spatial distribution inside the nucleon, which provides a three-dimensional picture of the nucleon. This feature makes GPDs a powerful tool to study the orbital momentum of partons...

The lepton angular distributions of the Drell-Yan process in fixed-target experiments and the Z-boson production at colliders are investigated by NLO and NNLO perturbative QCD and an intuitive geometric approach. The main features of the kinematic dependencies of the angular distributions coefficients can be well understood in the geometrical approach. Implications of this approach on...

The energy-momentum tensor (EMT) encodes information about how energy, momentum, forces, and angular momentum are distributed within a particle. Recent work has been done to explore the rich and unique structure contained in the EMT of spin-1 hadrons. This includes the derivation of a new collection of sum rules relating gravitational form factors to conservation laws, multipole moments, and...

Imaging the 3D partonic structure of the nucleon is a fundamental goal of every major nuclear experimental program, including the EIC. Ji first proposed Deeply Virtual Compton Scattering (DVCS) as a probe for understanding the spatial distribution of the partons by fourier transform of the exchanged momentum transfer between the initial and final proton. The extraction of observables from...
