    Geometric scaling in ultrahigh energy neutrinos and nonlinear perturbative QCD

    Full text link
    The ultrahigh energy neutrino cross section is a crucial ingredient in the calculation of the event rate in high energy neutrino telescopes. Currently there are several approaches which predict different behaviors for its magnitude for ultrahigh energies. In this contribution is presented a summary of current predictions based on the non-linear QCD evolution equations, the so-called perturbative saturation physics. In particular, predictions are shown based on the parton saturation approaches and the consequences of geometric scaling property at high energies are discussed. The scaling property allows an analytical computation of the neutrino scattering on nucleon/nucleus at high energies, providing a theoretical parameterization.Comment: 6 pages, one figure.

    Geometric scaling in ultrahigh energy neutrinos and nonlinear perturbative QCD

    Full text link
    It is shown that in ultrahigh energy inelastic neutrino-nucleon(nucleus) scattering the cross sections for the boson-hadron(nucleus) reactions should exhibit geometric scaling on the single variable tau_A =Q2/Q2_{sat,A}. The dependence on energy and atomic number of the charged/neutral current cross sections are encoded in the saturation momentum Q_{sat,A}. This fact allows an analytical computation of the neutrino scattering on nucleon/nucleus at high energies, providing a theoretical parameterization based on the scaling property.Comment: 5 pages, 4 figure

    High energy DVCS on a photon and related meson exclusive production

    Full text link
    In this work we estimate the differential cross section for the high energy deeply virtual Compton scattering on a photon target within the QCD dipole-dipole scattering formalism. For the phenomenology, a saturation model for the dipole-dipole cross section for two photon scattering is considered. Its robustness is supported by good description of current accelerator data. In addition, we consider the related exclusive vector meson production processes. This analysis is focused on the light ρ\rho and ϕ\phi meson production, which produce larger cross sections. The phenomenological results are compared with the theoretical calculation using the CD BFKL approach.Comment: 6 pages, 5 figures. Version to be published in Physical Review

    Investigating exclusive ρ0\rho^0 photoproduction within the Regge phenomenology approach

    Full text link
    The elastic differential and integrated total cross section for the exclusive ρ0\rho^0 photoproduction in electron-proton (epep) collisions are evaluated taking into account nonperturbative Pomeron exchange approach. By using three different models based on Regge phenomenology the results are compared to recent measurements by H1 Collaboration in epep collisions and by the CMS collaboration from ultraperipheral proton-lead collisions. The analysis is expanded by calculating the coherent nuclear cross section, σ(γAρ0A)\sigma (\gamma A\rightarrow \rho^0 A), which is applied to ρ0\rho^0 production in ultraperipheral lead-lead and xenon-xenon collisions. The predictions are compared to the measurements performed by ALICE Collaboration. Aspects of the theoretical uncertainties and limitations of the formalism are scrutinized

    Ultrahigh energy neutrinos and non-linear QCD dynamics

    Full text link
    The ultrahigh energy neutrino-nucleon cross sections are computed taking into account different phenomenological implementations of the non-linear QCD dynamic s. Based on the color dipole framework, the results for the saturation model supplemented by DGLAP evolution as well as for the BFKL formalism in the geometric scaling regime are presented. They are contrasted with recent calculations using NLO DGLAP and unified BFKL-DGLAP formalisms.Comment: 5 pages, 2 figures. Version to be published in Physical Review

    Nuclear DVCS at small-x using the color dipole phenomenology

    Full text link
    Using the high energy color dipole formalism, we study the coherent and incoherent nuclear DVCS process in the small-x regime. We consider simple models for the elementary dipole-hadron scattering amplitude that captures main features of the dependence on atomic number A, on energy and on momentum transfer t. Using the obtained amplitudes we make predictions for the nuclear DVCS cross section at photon level in the collider kinematics.Comment: 6 pages, 5 figures.
