Description

Heavy quark production in deep inelastic scattering proceeds via the Boson Gluon Fusion process and thus are ideal tools to constrain the gluon distribution functions in the nucleon/ion probed. Measurement of heavy flavor hadron pair production in deep inelastic scattering processes provides access to the transverse kinematics of the gluon and provide unique constraints to the gluon transverse momentum dependent distributions (TMDs), particularly in the high Bjorken x ($x_B >$ 0.01) regions. In this talk we will discuss the performance of a tagging algorithm for heavy flavor hadrons, utilizing the displaced tracks from the heavy flavor decays with the excellent track pointing resolution capabilities provided by an all Silicon tracker detector design. We will also discuss performance of exclusive reconstruction of heavy flavor hadron decays with the all Silicon tracker. Projections made on the gluon TMD measurements at a future EIC experiment with these tagging and reconstruction performances will also be discussed.
