Quark pseudodistributions at short distances
We perform a oneloop study of the small$$z_3^2$$ behavior of the Ioffetime distribution (ITD) $${\cal M} (\nu, z_3^2)$$, the basic function that may be converted into parton pseudo and quasidistributions. We calculate the corrections at the operator level, so that our results may be later used for pseudodistribution amplitudes and generalized parton pseudodistributions. We separate two sources of the $$z_3^2$$dependence at small $$z_3^2$$. One is related to the ultraviolet (UV) singularities generated by the gauge link, and another to shortdistance logarithms generating perturbative evolution of parton densities. Our calculation explicitly shows that, for a finite UV cutoff, the UVsingular terms vanish when $$z_3^2=0$$. The UV divergences are absent in the ratio $${\cal M} (\nu, z_3^2)/{\cal M} (0, z_3^2)$$ ("reduced" ITD). Still, it has a nontrivial shortdistance behavior due to $$\ln z_3^2 \Lambda^2$$ terms generating perturbative evolution of the parton densities. We give an explicit expression, up to constant terms, for the reduced ITD at one loop. It may be used in extraction of PDFs from the lattice QCD simulations. We also use our results to get new insights concerning the structure of parton quasidistributions at oneloop level.
