Proton image and momentum distributions on the light-front
Keywords:Light-front dynamics, relativistic three-body systems, proton structure
The proton has been studied in a fully dynamical three-body model on the light-front. The model is based on the concept of a strongly interacting diquark, either bound or virtual, which is generated from a zero-range interaction between the two active quarks. The obtained results for the Dirac electromagnetic form factor and also the density in the Ioffe-time space are shown and discussed. Additionally, we present results for the parton distribution function of the proton.
