Title: Factorization breaking of A d T for polarized deuteron targets in a relativistic framework

We discuss the possible factorization of the tensor asymmetry $$A^T_d$$ measured for polarized deuteron targets within a relativistic framework. We define a reduced asymmetry and find that factorization holds only in plane wave impulse approximation and if $p$-waves are neglected. Our numerical results show a strong factorization breaking once final state interactions are included. We also compare the $d$-wave content of the wave functions with the size of the factored, reduced asymmetry and find that there is no systematic relationship of this quantity to the d-wave probability of the various wave functions.
