Description

We report on recent progress in the evaluation of next-to-leading order (NLO) corrections to forward-backward jet observables, using Lipatov's QCD high energy effective action. We calculate both real and virtual corrections to the quark induced forward jet vertex at NLO, making use of a new regularization method and a subtraction mechanism. We also present the real NLO corrections to the quark induced Mueller-Tang jet vertex. Together with the already know virtual corrections it will allow for the construction of the complete NLO Mueller-Tang jet impact factor which is the only missing element for a complete NLO BFKL description of jet events with rapidity gap.
