### Skewed Sudakov Regime, Harmonic Numbers, and Multiple Polylogarithms

On the example of massless QED we study an asymptotic of the vertex when only
one of the two virtualities of the external fermions is sent to zero. We call
this regime the skewed Sudakov regime. First, we show that the asymptotic is
described with a single form factor, for which we derive a linear evolution
equation. The linear operator involved in this equation has a discrete
spectrum. Its eigenfunctions and eigenvalues are found. The spectrum is a
shifted sequence of harmonic numbers. With the spectrum found, we represent the
expansion of the asymptotic in the fine structure constant in terms of multiple
polylogarithms. Using this representation, the exponentiation of the doubly
logarithmic corrections of the Sudakov form factor is recovered. It is pointed
out that the form factor of the skewed Sudakov regime is growing with the
virtuality of a fermion decreasing at a fixed virtuality of another fermion.Comment: 6 page

### BFKL QCD Pomeron in High Energy Hadron Collisions: Inclusive Dijet Production

We calculate inclusive dijet production cross section in high energy hadron
collisions within the BFKL resummation formalism for the QCD Pomeron. Unlike
the previous calculations with the Pomeron developing only between tagging
jets, we include also the Pomerons which are adjacent to the hadrons. With
these adjacent Pomerons we define a new object --- the BFKL structure function
of hadron --- which enables one to calculate the inclusive dijet production for
any rapidity intervals. We present predictions for the K-factor and the
azimuthal angle decorrelation in the inclusive dijet production for
Fermilab-Tevatron and CERN-LHC energies.Comment: 8 pages, Latex, 3 figs. as a separate uuencoded compressed tar fil

### The Challenge of Light-Front Quantisation: Recent Results

We explain what is the challenge of light-front quantisation, and how we can
now answer it because of recent progress in solving the problem of zero modes
in the case of non-Abelian gauge theories. We also give a description of the
light-front Hamiltonian for SU(2) finite volume gluodynamics resulting from
this recent solution to the problem of light-front zero modes.Comment: 17 pages, lecture delivered by GBP at the XXXIV PNPI Winter School,

### Central Higgs Production at LHC from Single-Pomeron-Exchange

Contrary to common perceptions about systems produced in
Single-Pomeron-Exchange (SPE) pp interactions, the hard diffractive process
discovered at the CERN SPS-Collider leads to dominant central production of
Higgs bosons at the LHC. The rate for SPE production of Higgs bosons is
calculated to be 7-9 % of the total inclusive Higgs rate. In addition, an SPE
measurement program of dijet events is outlined for the early days of LHC
running which should answer many fundamental questions about the Pomeron
structure and its effective flux factor in the proton.Comment: 14 pages, 7 Encapsulated Postscript figures, LaTex, submitted to

### The Next-to-Leading BFKL Pomeron with Optimal Renormalization

The next-to-leading order (NLO) corrections to the BFKL equation in the BLM
optimal scale setting are briefly discussed. A striking feature of the BLM
approach is rather weak Q^2-dependence of the Pomeron intercept, which might
indicate an approximate conformal symmetry of the equation. An application of
the NLO BFKL resummation for the virtual gamma-gamma total cross section shows
a good agreement with recent L3 data at the CERN LEP2.Comment: 5 pages, 1 eps-figure, to appear in Proceedings of VIIIth Blois
