Title: Lattice QCD exploration of parton pseudo-distribution functions

Abstract

Here, we demonstrate a new method of extracting parton distributions from lattice calculations. The starting idea is to treat the generic equal-time matrix element $${\cal M} (Pz_3, z_3^2)$$ as a function of the Ioffe time $$\nu = Pz_3$$ and the distance $$z_3$$. The next step is to divide $${\cal M} (Pz_3, z_3^2)$$ by the rest-frame density $${\cal M} (0, z_3^2)$$. Our lattice calculation shows a linear exponential $$z_3$$-dependence in the rest-frame function, expected from the $$Z(z_3^2)$$ factor generated by the gauge link. Still, we observe that the ratio $${\cal M} (Pz_3 , z_3^2)/{\cal M} (0, z_3^2)$$ has a Gaussian-type behavior with respect to $$z_3$$ for 6 values of $P$ used in the calculation. This means that $$Z(z_3^2)$$ factor was canceled in the ratio. When plotted as a function of $$\nu$$ and $$z_3$$, the data are very close to $$z_3$$-independent functions. This phenomenon corresponds to factorization of the $x$- and $$k_\perp$$-dependence for the TMD $${\cal F} (x, k_\perp^2)$$. For small $$z_3 \leq 4a$$, the residual $$z_3$$-dependence is explained by perturbative evolution, with $$\alpha_s/\pi =0.1$$.
