Relating transversemomentumdependent and collinear factorization theorems in a generalized formalism
Abstract
We construct an improved implementation for combining TMD factorization transverse momentumdependent (TMD) factorization and collinear factorization. TMD factorization is suit able for low transverse momentum physics, while collinear factorization is suitable for high transverse momenta and for a cross section integrated over transverse momentum. The result is a modified version of the standard W + Y prescription traditionally used in the CollinsSoperSterman (CSS) formalism and related approaches. As a result, we further argue that questions regarding the shape and Q dependence of the cross sections at lower Q are largely governed by the matching to the Y term.

No generalized transverse momentum dependent factorization in the hadroproduction of high transverse momentum hadrons
It has by now been established that standard QCD factorization using transverse momentum dependent parton distribution functions fails in hadroproduction of nearly backtoback hadrons with high transverse momentum. The essential problem is that gaugeinvariant transverse momentum dependent parton distribution functions cannot be defined with processindependent Wilson line operators, thus implying a breakdown of universality. This has led naturally to proposals that a correct approach is to instead use a type of generalized transverse momentum dependent factorization in which the basic factorized structure is assumed to remain valid, but with transverse momentum dependent parton distribution functions that contain nonstandard, processdependent Wilsonmore » 
Single Spin Asymmetries in l p(transv. pol.) > h X processes and transverse momentum dependent factorization
Some estimates for the transverse Single Spin Asymmetry, A_N, in the inclusive processes l p(transv. Pol.) > h X, given in a previous paper, are expanded and compared with new experimental data. The predictions are based on the Sivers distributions and the Collins fragmentation functions which fit the azimuthal asymmetries measured in SemiInclusive Deep Inelastic Scattering (SIDIS) processes (l p(transv. Pol.) > l' h X). The factorisation in terms of Transverse Momentum Dependent distribution and fragmentation functions (TMD factorisation)  i.e., the theoretical framework in which SIDIS azimuthal asymmetries are analysed  is assumed to hold also for the inclusivemore » 
Transversemomentum dependent factorization for {gamma}*{pi}{sup 0}{yields}{gamma}
With a consistent definition of transversemomentum dependent (TMD) lightcone wave function, we show that the amplitude for the process {gamma}*{pi}{sup 0}{yields}{gamma} can be factorized when the virtuality of the initial photon is large. In contrast to the collinear factorization in which the amplitude is factorized as a convolution of the standard lightcone wave function and a hard part, the TMD factorization yields a convolution of a TMD lightcone wave function, a soft factor and a hard part. We explicitly show that the TMD factorization holds at oneloop level. It is expected that the factorization holds beyond oneloop level because themore »
