Introduction

4
The Bjorken limit of pQCD Consider a collision of hadronic particules with a center- of-mass energy W and a hard scale Q >> QCD The Bjorken limit: Q² , W² with Q²/W² fixed ( x Bj in DIS) Operator product expansion At leading twist: collinear factorization gluon distribution DGLAP evolution Higher twists suppressed by powers of Q² Scattering amplitudes decrease with increasing Q² Transverse view of the proton in DIS

5
The Regge limit of pQCD The Regge limit: W² with Q² fixed (x Bj 0 in DIS) One has to introduce a new scale: the saturation scale Q sat (W²) Consider a collision of hadronic particules with a center- of-mass energy W and a hard scale Q >> QCD If W is such that Q sat (W²) < Q, no higher-twist effects k T -factorization, unintegrated gluon distribution, BFKL evolution scattering amplitudes increase with increasing W If W is such that Q sat (W²) > Q, density effects are important (higher-twist) need to go beyond the OPE, strong gluon fields, CGC, saturation … scattering amplitudes approach unitarity limit Q sat (W²)

High-energy QCD (the Regge limit)

7
For an incoming quark of color i, at transverse position x: The action of the S matrix is Scattering matrix for high-energy partons For a gluon: the same with the adjoint Wilson line W A Wilson lines W F and W A : the degrees of freedom of high-energy QCD Y = log(W²) : total rapidity

8
T qq (x, x’,Y): the scattering amplitude of a qq dipole off the target: T qq (x, x’; y, y’,Y): the scattering amplitude of two qq dipoles: T gg (x, x’,Y): the scattering amplitude of a gg dipole: and more generally any multipole Dipoles and multipoles (2) Instead of directly the Wilson lines, colorless combinations arise as the degrees of freedom: We have denoted

9
Simplest illustration : DIS r: transverse size of the dipole b: impact parameter z: longitudinal momentum fraction of the quark does not depend on z in the high-energy limit the qq dipole amplitude T qq (r, b, Y) appears Y: total rapidity

10
Observables at small-x Particule production phenomenology: jet cross-sections, heavy-quark production, diffractive vector mesons production, di-lepton production, multiplicities … have been studied in this high-energy QCD framework The same dipole amplitudes enter in the formulation of inclusive, diffractive, exclusive cross-sections Y [A], and therefore T qq, T gg, T qqg … are mainly non-perturbative, however the Y evolution is computable (in the leading logarithmic approximation) for more on these equations, see Larry McLerran’s talk tomorrow and Robi Peschanski’s talk sunday More generally, any cross-section is a function of T qq, T gg, T qqg … The more exclusive the final state is, the more complicated the corresponding multipoles are How does one compute T qq, T gg, T qqg …?

Royon, in preparation the different observables are well described by BFKL and saturation models NLOQCD is a factor 2 below the data at small-x data: see Leif Joensson’s talk later today

J C34 (2004) 429 Bartels Golec-biernat Kowalski model to do better and compute, one needs a model for need an analysis of the BK equation at non zero momentum transfer: with t = -q² C.M. and G.

Diffractive photon dissociation is the dominant contribution to the diffractive cross-section diff at large M X in DIS: elas : involves the qq dipole fluctuation, dominant for small-mass final states dissoc : involves higher Fock state fluctuations: qqg, …dominant for large- mass final states Diffractive jet production (1) = Q²/M X ² <<1 rapidity gap = log(1/x pom ) x pom <<1 target proton k: transverse momentum of the final-state gluon C.

RHIC phenomenology see Larry McLerran’s talk tomorrow quark-antiquark pair production see Hiro Fujii’s talk sunday recent review on particule production and saturation at RHIC: J. Jalilian-Marian and Y. Kovchegov, hep-ph/0505052

20
Particule-production cross-sections are sensitive to the small-x regime of QCD they contain important complementary information w.r.t. DIS for T qq but also for T gg, T qqg, … on impact parameter/momentum transfer dependence Diffractive vector meson production at HERA: saturation models with ansatz for the impact parameter profile work quite well but that is not evidence for saturation need to start working with the momentum transfer Jet production in diffraction at HERA: great place to look for saturation effect can distinghuish between soft models and saturation Conclusions

21
Universality of T qq : there are several parametrizations for T qq but could we describe everything that T qq should describe with only one? new global analysis Has RHIC really provided evidence for saturation? waiting for the LHC or listen to Larry McLerran tomorrow Outlook
