DIS / Studying Transverse-Momentum-Dependent Fragmentation at LHCb

The Large Hadron Collider beauty (LHCb) experiment provides an opportu- nity to study hadronization processes, how particular hadrons are formed from scattered quarks and gluons (partons), in the forward region, 2 < η < 5. Going beyond traditional collinear non-perturbative fragmentation functions (FFs), transverse-momentum-dependent (TMD) FFs provide multidimensional information on the hadronization process. The excellent hadron identification capabilities of LHCb allow for a wealth of possible hadronization measurements. Recent results measuring TMD jet FFs for identified charged pions, kaons, and protons in a predominantly light quark jet sample will be presented. Ongoing measurements of TMD hadronization in heavy-flavor-tagged jets as well as the polarization of inclusively produced Λ and ̄Λ, sensitive to the polarizing TMD FF, will additionally be discussed.
