Title: Quasi-parton distribution functions, momentum distributions, and pseudo-parton distribution functions

Abstract

Here, we show that quasi-PDFs may be treated as hybrids of PDFs and primordial rest-frame momentum distributions of partons. This results in a complicated convolution nature of quasi-PDFs that necessitates using large p 3≳ 3 GeV momenta to get reasonably close to the PDF limit. Furthemore, as an alternative approach, we propose to use pseudo-PDFs P(x, z$$2\atop{3}$$) that generalize the light-front PDFs onto spacelike intervals and are related to Ioffe-time distributions M (v, z$$2\atop{3}$$), the functions of the Ioffe time v = p 3 z 3 and the distance parameter z$$2\atop{3}$$ with respect to which it displays perturbative evolution for small z 3. In this form, one may divide out the z$$2\atop{3}$$ dependence coming from the primordial rest-frame distribution and from the problematic factor due to lattice renormalization of the gauge link. The v-dependence remains intact and determines the shape of PDFs.
