Although parton distribution functions are the fundamental objects describing the inner structure of hadrons, they were so far not calculated from first principles.
In the past, lattice QCD has successfully been employed for the computation of hadronic spectra and form factors. Yet calculations of quark distributions are still missing, since they are given by light-cone correlation functions...

Quark orbital angular momentum (OAM) in the nucleon can be evaluated
directly by employing a Wigner function embodying the simultaneous

The quark contributions to the spin and mass of the nucleon are computed using $N_f=2$ twisted mass fermions with a physical value of the pion mass. We use improved methods to obtain accurate results for

Fourier transforms of electromagnetic form factors provide valuable insights into the spatial distribution of quarks/charge within a hadron.

In typical nucleon structure calculations on a lattice, the interpolating fields are optimized to overlap with the nucleon ground state at rest, which in practice limits the momentum transfer in form factors to $Q^2\le 1\,GeV^2$. There is great interest in studying nucleon form factors up to few tens of GeV^2. New experiments at the JLab 12-GeV upgrade will measure nucleon form factors with...

The anomalous magnetic moment of the muon currently shows a more than $3\sigma$ discrepancy between the experimental value and recent Standard Model predictions.
