Title: Jet tomography of the proton at the future Electron-Ion Collider 

Abstract: The future Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) will use electrons to image the quarks and gluons inside protons and neutrons with unprecedented precision. This will allow us to reveal the origin of their mass, spin, radius, and other properties. The EIC will not only allow us to extend traditional studies from fixed-target experiments to uncharted kinematic regions, but also will give us a novel tool: “jets” of particles.  In this talk, I will focus on the prospects of using jets to perform a “quantum 3D tomography” of the proton at the EIC. I will discuss the experimental feasibility of key measurements that will exploit the unprecedented combination of hermetic tracking, particle identification, and calorimetry of the future EIC detectors. I will argue that a jet program at the EIC could unleash a new era in the field of 3D imaging of the nucleon.
