Transverse momentum dependent parton distributions and azimuthal asymmetries in light-cone quark models

B. Pasquini, S. Boffi, A. V. Efremov, P. Schweitzer
We review the information on the spin and orbital angular momentum structure of the nucleon encoded in the T-even transverse momentum dependent parton distributions within light-cone quark models. Model results for azimuthal spin asymmetries in semi-inclusive lepton-nucleon deep-inelastic scattering are discussed, showing a good agreement with available experimental data and providing predictions to be further tested by future CLAS, COMPASS and HERMES data.
