The main focus of high energy physics research is the search for signals of physics beyond the Standard Model. Many of the experiments built for this purpose involve protons or neutrons (collectively termed nucleons), either in the beam, such as at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, or within the nuclei of the targets, such as those used for dark matter detection experiments. In order to extract information on the underlying interactions occurring in these experiments between quarks and other fundamental particles, one needs to know the distribution of the quarks within the nucleon. Lattice QCD simulations of the strong interactions between quarks and gluons can provide information on the momentum, spin and angular momentum of these...
