A sample of recent results in muon scattering measurements from the COMPASS experiment at CERN will be reviewed. These include high energy processes with longitudinally polarised proton and deuteron targets. High energy polarised measurements provide important constraints for studying the nucleon spin structure and thus permit to test the applicability of the theoretical framework of factorisation theorems and perturbative QCD. Specifically, latest results on longitudinal quark polarisation, quark helicity densities and gluon polarisation will be reviewed.

    A method of improving perturbation theory in QCD is developed which can be applied to any polarization operator. The case of the polarization operator ?(q[sup 2]), corresponding to the process e[sup +]e[sup -]?hadrons, is considered in detail. By the use of the analytical properties of ?(q[sup...

    The NA48/2 and NA62 experiments at CERN have collected large samples of charged kaons decays in 2003-2004 and in 2007-2008, respectively. In this paper some recent results will be reported. A preliminary measurement by NA48/2 and by NA62 of the K±→π±γγ branching ratio is...

    In this work we take a revised look at the charm quark mass determination from QCD sum rules analyses. On the theoretical side we use the most up to date calculations (amounting to up $${O(\alpha_s^3)}$$ expressions) and on the experimental side, to our knowledge, the most complete data set...

    We present an overview of the calculation of one-loop corrections to baryon magnetic moments in large-Nc chiral perturbation theory, where Nc is the number of colors. Nonanalytic corrections of orders mq1/2 and mq ln mq are explicitly included to relative order 1/Nc3 in the 1/Nc expansion....

    A primary goal of the STAR spin physics program is measuring the polarized gluon distribution function, Δg(x), accessible through the double longitudinal spin asymmetry, ALL. The STAR detector is uniquely suited for measuring ALL in a number of different final-state channels, such as...

    The perturbative non-linear (NL) effects in the small-x evolution of the gluon densities depend crucially on the infrared (IR) regularization. The IR regulator, Rc, is determined by the scale of the non-perturbative fluctuations of QCD vacuum. From the instanton models and from the lattice Rc...

    A nonperturbative approach based on the variational perturbation theory in quantum chromodynamics is developed. The variational series is different from the conventional perturbative expansion and can be used to go beyond the weak-coupling regime. The approach suggested takes into account the...

    We discuss some problems concerning the application of perturbative QCD to high energy soft processes. We show that summing the contributions of the lowest twist operators for non-singlet t-channel leads to a Regge-like amplitude. Singlet case is also discussed.

    It is shown that analytic properties of standard QCD perturbation theory contradict known spectral properties and contain, in particular, infrared-generated Landau ghost poles and cuts. As an outcome, a rigorous background perturbation theory is developed and its analytic properties are shown to...
