Title: Probing quark-gluon correlation functions

Abstract

We review the applicability of the QCD factorization theorem to multiple scattering in deeply inelastic lepton-nucleus scattering. We show why an A{sup 1/3}-type nuclear enhancement can be calculated consistently in perturbative QCD. We derive the transverse momentum broadening of the leading pions in deeply inelastic lepton-nucleus collisions. We argue that the measurement of such transverse momentum broadening can provide direct information on the multiple-parton correlation functions inside a nucleus. We also estimate the numerical values of the broadening at different values of x{sub B} and Q{sup 2}. (c) 2000 The American Physical Society.
