The Spin Structure of the Proton

One of the main challenges in nuclear and particle physics in the last 20 years has been to understand how the proton's spin is built up from its quark and gluon constituents. Quark models generally predict that about 60% of the proton's spin should be carried by the spin of the quarks inside, whereas high energy scattering experiments have shown that the quark spin contribution is small — only about 30%. This result has been the underlying motivation for about 1000 theoretical papers and a global program of ...
