Azimuthal Asymmetric Distribution of Hadrons Inside a Jet at Hadron Collider

Abstract

We study the azimuthal asymmetric distribution of hadrons inside a high energy jet in the single transverse polarized proton proton scattering, coming from the Collins effect multiplied by the quark transversity distribution. We argue that the Collins function in this process is the same as that in the semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering. The experimental study of this process will provide us important information on the quark transversity distribution and test the universality of the fragmentation functions.
