Generalized Parton Distributions in Deeply Virtual Lepton Scattering Processes

Spin and transverse momentum dependent Generalized Parton Distributions (GPDs) exist at the
interface between the non-perturbative regime of QCD hadron structure and observable quantities.
The distributions appear as linear superpositions and convolutions within helicity amplitudes
for parton-nucleon scattering processes, which, in turn, occur in amplitudes for leptoproduction
processes. We have developed a “flexible model" of quark and gluon GPDs that incorporates
diquark and other spectators, Regge behavior and evolution. Chiral even GPDs determine deeply
virtual Compton scattering amplitudes and are compared with cross section and polarization data.
The chiral odd GPDs can be generated from these via parity relations. Those chiral odd GPDs,
including “transversity", lead to predictions for pseudoscalar leptoproduction. We will present
relations between crucial quark-nucleon or gluon-nucleon GPDs and the rich array of angular
distributions in Deeply Virtual Scattering processes.
