Dr. Pitonyak Publishes NSF-funded Research with Miller ’21, Malda ’22, and Colleagues

Dr. Daniel Pitonyak, assistant professor of physics, Josh Miller ’21 (physics and mathematics), Michael Malda ’22 (physics and analytical finance), and physicists from Penn State Berks and Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility published “Updated QCD global analysis of single transverse-spin asymmetries: Extracting H~, and the role of the Soffer bound and lattice QCD”.  The article appeared in the peer-reviewed journal Physical Review D, a leading journal in elementary particle physics research. The authors analyzed additional theoretical and experimental constraints on phenomena in high-energy collisions called single transverse-spin asymmetries and showed their consistency with the underlying mechanism of quark-gluon-quark correlations.  The research was funded by Dr. Pitonyak’s National Science Foundation grant.

Dr. Pitonyak and Student-Researcher Present at National Conference

Dr. Daniel Pitonyak, assistant professor of physics, and Joshua Miller ’21, physics and mathematics, presented their summer research, funded by an Edward H. and Jeanne Donlevy Arnold Grant, at the American Physical Society Division of Nuclear Physics Conference in Virginia Oct. 14. Pitonyak presented “Global Analysis of Quark-Gluon Correlations in Hadrons,” and Miller gave a poster presentation, “3-Dimensional Hadronic Structure from Transverse-Spin Observables in High-Energy Collisions.” Their research is focused on better understanding the structure of the proton and the most fundamental pieces of matter that compose it.
