Description

Data from the Belle Collaboration for associated production (with a light unpolarized hadron) and single-inclusive production of transversely polarized $\Lambda$-hyperons in $e^+e^-$ annihilation processes allowed to extract, for the first time, the $\Lambda$ polarizing fragmentation function, by adopting a simplified TMD approach.
Recent theoretical developments on the computation of cross sections for single-inclusive hadron production in $e^+e^-$ annihilation, within a Soft Collinear Effective Theory approach, combined with the CSS formalism for the double-hadron production case, can be used to perform a renewed analysis, adopting a proper TMD factorization scheme. Preliminary results and a comparison between the two analyses are presented.
