    Instanton-induced production of QCD jets

    Get PDF
    We consider the instanton contributions for the production of a gluon jet with large transverse momentum in QCD. We find that Mueller's corrections corresponding to the rescattering of hard quanta are likely to remove contributions of large instantons, making this cross section well defined. This observation generalizes the previous discussion of instanton effects in the deep inelastic scattering and suggests that all hard processes in the QCD receive hard non-perturbative corrections from instantons of small size, of order ρ1/(Qαs)\rho\sim 1/(Q\alpha_s).Comment: LATEX, 7 pages, DESY 94-17

    Photon impact factor and kTk_T-factorization for DIS in the next-to-leading order

    Get PDF
    The photon impact factor for the BFKL pomeron is calculated in the next-to-leading order (NLO) approximation using the operator expansion in Wilson lines. The result is represented as a NLO kTk_T-factorization formula for the structure functions of small-xx deep inelastic scattering.Comment: 13 pages, 4 figures, typos corrected. arXiv admin note: substantial text overlap with arXiv:1009.472

    Instanton-induced production of jets with large transverse momentum in QCD

    Get PDF
    We consider the instanton-induced cross section for production of a gluon jet with large transverse momentum in QCD and point out that Mueller's corrections corresponding to the rescattering of hard quanta are likely to remove contributions of large instantons, making this cross section well defined. Some speculations about possible phenomenological signatures are presented.Comment: LATEX, requires espcrc2.sty file, appended at the end. (Invited talk presented by V. Braun at the conference ``QCD-94'', Montpellier, France, July 7 -13, 1994), MPI-PhT/94-5

    NLO evolution of color dipoles

    Get PDF
    The small-xx deep inelastic scattering in the saturation region is governed by the non-linear evolution of Wilson-line operators. In the leading logarithmic approximation it is given by the BK equation for the evolution of color dipoles. In the next-to-leading order the BK equation gets contributions from quark and gluon loops as well as from the tree gluon diagrams with quadratic and cubic nonlinearities. We calculate the gluon contribution to small-x evolution of Wilson lines (the quark part was obtained earlier).Comment: 43 pages, 12 figure

    Factorization and Effective Action for High-Energy Scattering in QCD

    Get PDF
    I demonstrate that the amplitude of the high-energy scattering can be factorized in a convolution of the contributions due to fast and slow fields. The fast and slow fields interact by means of Wilson-line operators -- infinite gauge factors ordered along the straight line. The resulting factorization formula gives a starting point for a new approach to the effective action for high-energy scattering.Comment: Talk presented at the workshop "Continuous Advances in QCD", (Minneapolis), April 1998. 15 pages, 3 eps figures, Latex using sprocl.sty and psfig.te

    Factorization for high-energy scattering

    Get PDF
    I demonstrate that the amplitude of the high-energy scattering can be factorized in a product of two independent functional integrals over "fast" and "slow" fields which interact by means of Wilson-line operators -- gauge factors ordered along the straight lines.Comment: 4 pages, Latex, 1 postscript figure, to appear in PR

    Rapidity factorization and evolution of gluon TMDs

    Get PDF
    I discuss how the rapidity evolution of gluon transverse momentum dependent distribution changes from nonlinear evolution at small x1x\ll 1 to linear evolution at moderate x1x\sim 1.Comment: 10 pages, contribution to Proceedings of QCD Evolution Workshop 201

    Gluon Distributions and Color Charge Correlations in a Saturated Light-cone Wavefunction

    Get PDF
    We describe the light-cone wavefunction in the saturation regime in terms of the density of gluons per unit of transverse phase space, the occupation number, and in terms of the color charge correlator. The simple McLerran- Venugopalan model gives what are claimed to be general results for the phase space gluon density, but it does not well describe the general case for the charge correlator. We derive the general momentum dependence and rapidity dependence of the color charge correlator which exhibits strong color shielding. A simplel physical picture which leads to these general results is described.Comment: 17 pages, Latex, 7 figure
