Resumen:
We present the first fully differential next-To-leading order QCD calculation for lepton production in transversely polarized hadronic collisions, p↑p↑→±X, where the lepton arises from the decay of an electroweak gauge boson. The calculation is implemented in the Monte-Carlo like code che that already includes the unpolarized and longitudinally polarized cross sections and may be readily used to perform a comparison to experimental data and to extract information on the related parton distributions. We analyze the perturbative stability of the cross-section and double spin asymmetry ATT at RHIC kinematics. We find that the QCD corrections are non-negligible even at the level of asymmetries and that they strongly depend on the lepton kinematics. Furthermore, we present two scenarios for transversely polarized parton distributions, based on the de Florian-Sassot-Stratmann-Vogelsang (DSSV) set of longitudinally parton densities and fully evolved to NLO accuracy, that can be used for the evaluation of different observables involving transverse polarization.
