Duality symmetry of BFKL equation: reggeized gluons vs color dipoles

By Alex Prygarin


We show that the duality symmetry of the BFKL equation can be interpreted as a symmetry under rotation of the BFKL Kernel in the transverse space from s-channel (color dipole model) to t-channel (reggeized gluon formulation). We argue that the duality symmetry holds also in the non-forward case due to a very special structure of the non-forward BFKL Kernel, which can be written as a sum of three forward BFKL Kernels. The duality symmetry is established by identifying the dual coordinates with the transverse coordinates of a non-diagonal dipole scattered off the target.Comment: 13 pages, 5 figure
