"Hadronization studies at LHCb "

Cynthia Nunes , University of Michigan
[Host: Simonetta Liuti]

The Large Hadron Collider beauty (LHCb) experiment provides an opportunity to study hadronization processes, how particular hadrons are formed from scattered quarks and gluons (partons), in the forward region. Going beyond traditional collinear non-perturbative fragmentation functions (FFs), transverse-momentum-dependent (TMD) FFs provide multidimensional information on the hadronization process. The excellent hadron identification capabilities LHCb allows for a wealth of possible hadronization measurements. Recent results measuring TMD jet FFs for identified charged pions, kaons, and protons in a predominantly light quark jet sample will be presented. Ongoing measurements of TMD hadronization in heavy-flavor-tagged jets as well as hyperon transverse polarization will additionally be discussed.
