The nucleon spin structure and the statistical parton distributions

Triangle Nuclear Theory Colloquium
Jacques Soffer (Temple U.)

We will first recall why the nucleon spin sructure is such a difficult and subtle
problem, not yet fully understood in QCD. We will then describe the quantum statistical approach to parton distributions and some recent results, in particular related to the nucleon spin structure. Future measurements are challenging to check the validity of this novel framework.
