The Transverse Momentum Dependent Partonic Distributions (TMD-PDFs) and Fragmentation Functions (TMD-FFs) should reveal new properties of the 3-dimensional structure of nucleons and of the quark hadronization process. Many experimental data are now available and much progress has been made in their phenomenological interpretation. A short summary of the situation is presented.

The orbital angular momentum of quarks and gluons contributes significantly to the proton spin budget and attracted a lot of attention in the recent years, both theoretically and experimentally.

Definitions of orbital angular momentum based on Wigner distributions are used to discuss the connection between the Ji definition of the quark orbital angular momentum and that of Jaffe and Manohar. The difference between these two definitions can be interpreted as the change in the quark orbital angular momentum as it leaves the target in a DIS experiment. The mechanism responsible for that...

Double parton scattering (DPS) is the process in which two distinct pairs of partons hard scatter in an individual proton-proton collision. It can be an important background to single scattering processes suppressed by small or multiple coupling constants (e.g. new physics signals), and can reveal novel information about the proton structure. I review recent developments in the endeavour to...

The upgraded facility will accelerate electron beams to 11 GeV for experiments in the existing Halls A, B and C. In addition, a 12 GeV beam can be...

In the last few years interest for Light Dark Matter (LDM) in the MeV - GeV range has been increasingly growing. Direct detection of non-relativistic dark matter particles from the Galactic halo mainly focused to higher masses(> 10 GeV) being insensitive to few-GeV or lighter DM, whose nuclear scattering transfers invisibly small kinetic energy to a recoiling nucleus. On the other hand...

COMPASS is a fixed target experiment at the CERN SPS taking data since 2002. A major part of the COMPASS program at CERN is dedicated to the investigation of the 3 dimensional structure of the nucleon which can be reached measuring the spin and transverse momentum dependent distributions (TMDs) and generalized parton distributions (GPDs).
TMDs have been investigated at COMPASS in...

Light-front Hamiltonian field theory has advanced to the stage of becoming a viable non-perturbative method for solving forefront problems in strong interaction physics. Physics drivers include hadron mass spectroscopy, generalized parton distribution functions,
spin structures of the hadrons, inelastic strength functions, hadronization, particle production by strong external time-dependent...

Light-front holography provides a precise relation between the bound-state amplitudes in the fifth dimension of AdS space and the boost-invariant light-front wavefunctions describing the internal structure of hadrons in physical space-time. The resulting valence Fock-state wavefunctions of the light-front QCD Hamiltonian satisfy a relativistic equation of motion, analogous to the...

Oral contribution

In a recent work\cite{Sales} we demonstrated an interesting result about the properties of tunneling time in the light front with the help of phase time. The question we may pose is: What do we understand as a tunneling time? Since the quantum system goes across a region within the potential that is forbidden in classical physics, we are interested in knowing how long this system takes to do...
