Radiative effects in deep virtual Compton scattering


Journal Article

© 2018 authors. Published by the American Physical Society. Radiative corrections to the cross sections of photon electroproduction and the single spin asymmetries induced by the interference between the Bethe-Heitler and deep virtual Compton scattering amplitudes are calculated within the leading log approximation. The deep virtual Compton scattering amplitude is presented in the Belitsky-Müller-Kirchner (BMK) approximation for the polarized initial particles. The Fortran code for estimation of the radiative effects in a given kinematic point and Monte Carlo generator for simulation of one or two photons are developed. Numerical results are performed for beam-spin asymmetries in kinematical conditions of current experiments in the Jefferson Laboratory.
