Title: Dilepton Production from Collisions of Polarized Spin 1/2 Hadrons. 2. Parton-model predictions

Abstract

Parton-model predictions for lepton-pair production from polarized spin-1/2 particles are considered within the context of a formalism explained in a companion paper. The polarization effects in the quantum-chromodynamic 2 {yields} 2 subprocesses which contribute to lepton-pair production are found to be quite simple. Following the work of Ralston and Soper, polarized distribution functions are defined for gluons as well as quarks. Finally, a detailed discussion of polarization and the hard-scattering formalism is presented for the two cases of intrinsic parton transverse momentum allowed or forbidden.
