Scaling and higher twist in the nucleon Compton amplitude
January 14, 2020
The partonic structure of hadrons plays an important role in a vast array of high-energy and nuclear physics experiments. It also underpins the theoretical understanding of hadron structure. Recent developments in lattice QCD offer new opportunities for reliably studying partonic structure from first principles. Here we report on the use of the Feynman-Hellmann theorem to study the forward Compton amplitude in the unphysical region. We demonstrate how this amplitude provides direct constraint on hadronic inelastic structure functions. The use of external momentum transfer allows us to study the $Q^2$ evolution to explore the onset of asymptotic scaling and reveal higher-twist effects in partonic structure.
