Title: TMDs and SSAs in hadronic interactions

Abstract

Here we present an overview on the current experimental and phenomenological status of transverse single spin asymmetries (tSSAs) in proton-proton collisions. In particular, we focus on large-pT inclusive pion, photon, jet, pion-jet production and Drell-Yan processes. For all of them theoretical estimates are given in terms of a generalised parton model (GPM) based on a transverse momentum dependent (TMD) factorisation scheme. We also make comparisons with the corresponding results in a collinear twist-3 formalism and in a modified GPM approach. On the experimental side, a selection of the most interesting and recent results from RHIC is presented.
