Strange and gluonic contributions to the nucleon spin
Inclusive deep inelastic scattering (DIS) experiments lead to a small contribution of the quark spins to the nucleon spin and a negative contribution from strange quarks. Historically this triggered the interest in measuring strange form factors. However, the result of these inclusive experiments has to be reinterpreted taking into account the axial anomaly in QCD, which depends on the gluon contribution to the nucleon spin. The COMPASS experiment at CERN and experiments at RHIC are going to measure this gluonic contribution.
