Abstract

For hadron collisions, transverse-momentum-dependent parton distribution functions (TMD PDFs) are important quantities to connect the- oretic calculations and experimental cross sections. And recently, basis light-front quantization (BLFQ) has become a powerful tool to investigate the structures of the bound state. We present the first calculations within the BLFQ framework for the leading twist quark TMDs under a trivial assumption of the gauge link. We compare our calculations with previous calculations via the PDF limit and evolve our results of the unpolarized TMDs.
