Title: Model study of generalized parton distributions with helicity flip

Abstract

Generalized parton distributions with helicity flip are studied in the quark sector, within a simple version of the MIT bag model, assuming an SU(6) wave function for the proton target. In the framework under scrutiny, it turns out that only the generalized transversity distribution, H{sub T}{sup q}, is nonvanishing. For this quantity, the forward limit is properly recovered and numerical results are found to underestimate recent lattice data for its first moment. Positivity bounds recently proposed are fulfilled by the obtained distribution. The relevance of the analysis for the planning of measurements of the quark generalized transversity is addressed.
