Hard exclusive hadronic processes allow to resolve the internal structure of hadrons and even nuclei from a new perspective and provide so complementary information to those obtained from inclusive measurements. The non-perturbative partonic content, accessible in these processes, is encoded in generalized parton distributions and distribution amplitudes. In this talk the theory is shortly introduced and phenomenological applications are discussed.
The Particle Physics Theory seminar is a weekly series of talks reflecting the diverse interests of the group. Topics include analytic and numerical calculations based on the Standard Model of elementary particle physics, theories exploring new physics, as well as more formal developments in gauge theories and gravity..
