We investigate the effects of the saturation boundary on small-x evolution at the next-to-leading order accuracy and beyond. We demonstrate that the instabilities of the next-to-leading order BFKL evolution are not cured by the presence of the nonlinear saturation effects, and a resummation of the higher order corrections is therefore needed for the nonlinear evolution.

We calculate in the next-to-leading order the impact factor (vertex) for the production of a forward high-p_T jet, in the approximation of small aperture of the jet cone in the pseudorapidity-azimuthal angle plane. The final expression for the vertex turns out to be simple and easy to implement in numerical calculations.

I present recent calculations of observables in top quark pair production at hadron colliders, including the total cross section, the invariant mass distribution, the transverse momentum and rapidity distributions, and the forward-backward asymmetry. The calculations are based on the resummation of threshold logarithms at NNLL accuracy beyond NLO.

We present the result of a measurement of single top-quark production
in the t-channel at 7 TeV proton-proton collisions with the ATLAS
detector at the Large Hadron Collider. A lower limit on the CKM matrix

An iterative solution best suited for a Monte Carlo implementation for the non-forward BFKL equation is presented and possible applications discussed. We introduce running coupling effects in a way compatible with the bootstrap, fundamental condition for gluon reggeization and see how this naturally leads to renormalon effects in the infrared.

Generalized Parton Distributions (GPDs) offer a new way to access the quark and gluon nucleon structure. We advocate the need to supplement the experimental study of deeply virtual Compton scattering by its crossed version, timelike Compton scattering (TCS) i.e. the exclusive photoproduction of a lepton pairs with large invariant mass. We review recent progress in this domain, in particular...

Lipatov's high-energy effective action is a very promising tool for computations in the Regge limit beyond leading order.

We investigate the possible role of linearly polarized gluons in Higgs production from unpolarized pp collisions.

The transverse momentum distribution of a...
