    A new look for good old parton dynamics

    Full text link
    A short review is given of the idea and of the present status of recently proposed evolution equations that respect the Gribov-Lipatov reciprocity between space-like and time-like parton dynamics in all orders.Comment: Talk presented at the XXXIX International Symposium on Multiparticle Dynamics, Gomel, Belorussia, September 2009; 5 page

    Generalizing the DGLAP Evolution of Fragmentation Functions to the Smallest x Values

    Full text link
    An approach which unifies the Double Logarithmic Approximation at small x and the leading order DGLAP evolution of fragmentation functions at large x is presented. This approach reproduces exactly the Modified Leading Logarithm Approximation, but is more complete due to the degrees of freedom given to the quark sector and the inclusion of the fixed order terms. We find that data from the largest x values to the peak region can be better fitted than with other approaches.Comment: 10 pages, 3 figure

    QCD and Hadron Dynamics

    Get PDF
    Perturbative QCD predicts and describes various features of multihadron production. An amazing similarity between observable hadron systems and calculable underlying parton ensembles justifies the attempts to use the language of quarks and gluons down to small momentum scales, to approach the profound problems that are commonly viewed as being entirely non-perturbative.Comment: Talk at the Royal Society meeting "Structure of Matter", London, May 200

    Comments on the observation of high multiplicity events at the LHC

    Full text link
    We analyze the structure of the high multiplicity events observed by the CMS collaboration at the LHC. We argue that the bulk of the observed correlations is due to the production of a pair of jets with p_t > 15 GeV/c. We also suggest that high multiplicity events are due to a combination of three effects: high underlying multiplicity for collisions at small impact parameters, upward fluctuations of the gluon density in the colliding protons, and production of hadrons in the fragmentation of dijets. The data analysis is suggested which may clarify the underlying dynamics of the high multiplicity events and probe fluctuations of the gluon field as a function of x.Comment: 8 pages, final version published in Phys.Rev.

    Soft gluons at large angles in hadron collisions

    Full text link
    A general discussion is presented of the single logarithmic soft factor that appears in two scale QCD observables in processes involving four partons. We treat it as the ``fifth form factor'', accompanying the four collinear singular Sudakov form factors attached to colliding and outgoing hard partons. The fifth form factor is expressed in terms of the Casimir operators (squared colour charges) of irreducible representations in the crossing tt- and uu-channels. As an application we revisit the problem of large angle radiation in gg→gggg\to gg and give a relatively simple solution and interpretation of the results. We found an unexpected symmetry of the soft anomalous dimension under exchange of internal and external variables of the problem whose existence calls for explanation.Comment: 29 pages, pictures generated with feynmf graphic packag
