Abstract© 2020 authors. Published by the American Physical Society. We present results for the moments of nucleon isovector vector and axial generalized parton distribution functions computed within lattice QCD. Three ensembles of maximally twisted mass clover-improved fermions simulated with a physical value of the pion mass are analyzed. Two of these ensembles are generated using two degenerate light quarks. A third ensemble is used having, in addition to the light quarks, strange and charm quarks in the sea. A careful analysis of the convergence to the ground state is carried out that is shown to be essential for extracting the correct nucleon matrix elements. This allows a controlled determination of the unpolarized, helicity, and tensor second Mellin moments. The vector and axial-vector generalized form factors are also computed as a function of the momentum transfer square up to about 1 GeV2. The three ensembles allow us to check for unquenching effects and to assess lattice finite volume effects.
