Hadron structure from generalized parton distributions

M. Diehl

Generalized parton distributions are a versatile tool for investigating hadron structrure at the level of quarks and gluons. After an introduction to these distributions and their general properties, I discuss two main physics aspects: the possibilities to reveal the spatial distribution of partons and to quantify their orbital angular momentum.
