"N3LO extraction of the Sivers function from SIDIS, Drell-Yan, and W/Z boson production data"

Alexey Prokudin , Penn State University
[Host: Dustin Keller]

I will talk about a global fit of the available polarized Semi-Inclusive Deep Inelastic Scattering (SIDIS), polarized pion-induced Drell-Yan (DY) and W/Z boson production data at N3LO and NNLO accuracy of the Transverse Momentum Dependent (TMD) evolution, and extraction of the Sivers function for u,d,s and and for sea quarks. The Qiu-Sterman function is determined in a model independent way via the operator product expansion from the extracted Sivers function. I will also show the study of the applicability region, the impact of the unpolarized distributions' uncertainties, the universality of the Sivers functions, positivity constraints, the significance of the sign-change relation, and provide the comparison with the existing extractions.
