Description

REF 2014

Understanding high-energy hadronic processes within the TMD and Small-XB 
frameworks: comparison and matching


 

The first Workshop `Resummation, Evolution, Factorization' to be held on 8 - 11 December 2014 in Antwerp (Belgium) follows up the previous TMD/uPDF Workshop and is aimed to continue, extend and develop the discussion initiated on the latter.

The principal goal of this series of Workshops is to organise a discussion between the experts from the communities specialising, on the one hand, in the investigation of the nucleon structure based on the Transverse-Momentum Dependent factorization framework (TMD) and, on the other hand, in various methods of dealing with the unintegrated Parton Distribution Functions (uPDF) in the small-XB regime. Given that these two big communities attempt to address quite overlapping physical phenomena by means of the different languages, the strong demand arises for mutual understanding, promoting the possible development of joint research programs and unified treatments of some of the crucial problems in the theory of strong interaction. 

The key topics of the first REF Workshop will cover the most important theoretical and phenomenological issues related to the study of the hadronic processes at high energy in which the transverse degrees of freedom are relevant. 

The theoretical part includes the fundamental problems of factorization, operator definitions and gauge invariance of parton densities, their renormalization and evolution in different Xregimes. 

The phenomenological part addresses specific high-energy processes available at the LHC, JLab, RHIC and EIC (Drell-Yan process, Higgs production etc.) within the frameworks of the TMDs and uPDFs, emphasizing on the profound analysis of the matches and mismatches of their predictions. 

You are welcome to register by 1 Dec 2014 at https://indico.cern.ch/event/330428/registration/register#/register

More information on the scientific program, working schedule and local organisation will follow in the second bulletin. We are looking forward to seeing you in Antwerp on 8 - 11 Dec 2014.

      Effect of TMD evolution and partonic flavor on e+e- annihilation into hadrons 25m Hof Van Liere, Prentenkabinet

      University of Antwerp

      Prinsstraat 13 2000 Antwerp
      We calculate the transverse momentum dependence in the production of two back-to-back hadrons in electron-positron annihilations at 100 GeV^2. We use the parameters of the transverse-momentum-dependent (TMD) fragmentation functions that we recently extracted from the HERMES multiplicity data at 2.4 GeV^2. We apply TMD evolution according to two different approaches and using different parameters for the socalled nonperturbative part of TMD evolution. We explore the sensitivity of our results to these different choices and to the flavor dependence of parton fragmentation functions. We discuss how experimental measurements could discriminate among various scenarios.

      Collinear QCD, TMD resummation and non-perturbative aspects in SIDIS processes 25m Building R, Room R218

      Building R, Room R218

      University of Antwerp

      TMD resummation for SIDIS processes is studied in the framework of the original Collins-Soper-Sterman formalism, with special attention to the interplay between perturbative QCD and non-perturbative contributions. Phenomenological implementations of the TMD formalism to SIDIS processes will be discussed with practical examples, exploring different kinematical configurations of SIDIS experiments.

      Production of forward jets within high-energy factorization 25m Building R, Room R218

      Building R, Room R218

      University of Antwerp

      We propose a method to introduce Sudakov effects to unintegrated gluon density promoting it to be hard scale dependent. The advantage of the approach is that it guarantees that the gluon density is positive definite and that on integrated level the Sudakov effects cancel. Besides that the method to introduce the Sudakov effects is convenient since it does not need evaluation of cross section in the process of imposing the effects. As a case study we apply the method to calculate angular correlations in production of forward-forward dijet and RpA ratio for p+p vs. p+Pb collision.

      We introduce Lipatov's effective action, which displays high-energy factorization in a gauge invariant way through the inclusion of reggeon fields, and show several computational applications of this approach, including the gluon Regge trajectory at two loops and the NLL effective jet vertices for semi-inclusive forward jet production and jet-gap-jet configurations.

      High-energy resummation effects in Mueller-Navelet jet production at the LHC 25m Building R, Room R218

      Building R, Room R218

      University of Antwerp

      The study of the production of two forward jets with a large interval of rapidity at hadron colliders was proposed by Mueller and Navelet as a possible test of the high energy dynamics of QCD. We analyze this process within a complete next-to-leading logarithm framework, supplemented by the use of the Brodsky-Lepage-Mackenzie procedure extended to the perturbative Regge dynamics, to find the optimal renormalization scale. This leads to a very good description of the recent CMS data at LHC for the azimuthal correlations of the jets.

      Impact factor for quark-antiquark-gluon jet production in diffractive DIS 25m Buidling R, Room 218

      We present the calculation of the impact factor for the photon to quark, antiquark and gluon transition within Balitsky's high energy OPE. We also rederive the impact factor for photon to quark and antiquark transition within the same framework. These results provide the necessary building blocks for further phenomenological studies of inclusive diffractive DIS as well as for two and three jets diffractive production which go beyond approximations discussed in the litterature.

      Building R, Room 218

      Rodestraat 14 2000 Antwerp
      We consider the transverse-momentum distribution of generic high-mass systems of non-strongly interacting particles (lepton pairs, vector bosons, Higgs particles, ...) produced in hadronic collisions. The logarithmically-enhanced contributions at small transverse momentum are treated to all perturbative orders by a universal resummation formula that depends on a single process-dependent hard factor. The formalism is applied to Drell-Yan lepton pairs and Higgs boson production at Tevatron and LHC energies. We combine the most advanced perturbative information available at present for these processes: resummation up to next-to-next-to-leading logarithmic accuracy and fixed-order perturbation theory up to next-to-next-to-leading order. We show and discuss the reduction in the scale dependence of the results with respect to lower-order calculations, estimating the corresponding perturbative uncertainty.

      Soft gluons and the ordering problem 25m Building R, Room R218

      Building R, Room R218

      University of Antwerp

      Recent developments (JHEP07 (2012) 026) have shown that is not always possible to factorize all collinear singularities into process independent and universal functions. This breakdown of collinear factorization was anticipated using an algorithm to compute the leading soft gluon corrections to a hard process (JHEP08(2006)059). Such algorithm is base on the assumption that the successive emissions can be ordered in transverse momentum. In this work we show that this assumption is correct at the first two non-trivial orders. We do this by studying the leading behavior of the soft corrections to a hard process due to one virtual exchange and one and two real emissions.

      Transverse momentum gluon density at low-x 25m Building R, Room 218

      Building R, Room 218

      University of Antwerp

      We present new results on the unintegrated TMD (transverse momentum dependent) gluon density (u.g.d.) at low $x$, which based on our previous study [1]. We match this u.g.d. at low transverse momenta $\mid k_T\mid$ and starting scale $Q_0^2 = 1-3$~GeV$^2$ to the exact solution of the BFKL equation outside of the saturation region at large $\mid k_T\mid$ obtained in [2], which includes all multiple Pomeron exchanges. Then, to extend this u.g.d at higher $Q^2$ we use the Catani-Ciafoloni-Fiorani-Marchesini (CCFM) evolution equation. The inclusion of the CCFM evolution results in a large increase of the u.g.d. magnitude at low $x$ and large $\mid k_T\mid$ above a few GeV$/$c. The application of the obtained gluon distribution to the analysis of the $ep$ deep inelastic scattering allows us to get the results, which describe reasonably well the H1 and ZEUS data on the longitudinal proton structure function $F_L(x,Q^2)$, $F_{2c}(x,Q^2$ and $F_{2b}(x,Q^2$. In addition to this the use of new u.g.d. allows us to describe satisfactorily the LHC data on heavy meson production and especially the correlation between two B-mesons produced in $pp$ collisions. The comparison of our new TMD unintegrated gluon density to the another ones is presented.

      Impact of gluon polarization on Higgs production at the LHC 25m Building D, Room D013

      Building D, Room D013

      University of Antwerp

      Linearly polarized gluons inside an unpolarized proton contribute to the transverse momentum distributions of (pseudo)scalar particles produced inclusively in hadronic collisions, such as Higgs bosons and quarkonia with even charge conjugation ($\eta_c$, $\eta_b$, $\chi_{c0}$, $\chi_{b0}$). Moreover, they can produce azimuthal asymmetries in the associated production of a Higgs boson and a jet, in a kinematic region in which they are almost back to back, and modify the transverse spectrum of the pair. We show how these effects could be measured in the running experiments at the LHC.

      Gluon TMDs and quarkonium production in (un)polarized proton-proton collisions 25m Building D, Room D013

      Building D, Room D013

      University of Antwerp

      In this talk, I discuss how the study of quarkonium production in unpolarised and polarised proton-proton collisions can provide important insights on the gluon TMDs. The study of back-to-back production of quarkonium + isolated photon provides a unique way to extract the gluon TMDs f1^g and h1^perp,g at the LHC [1] and at a proposed Fixed-Target ExpeRiment at the LHC (AFTER@LHC). Although with smaller rates [2], Psi+Z and Upsilon+Z also offer interesting prospects at LHC energies. In addition, Quarkonium + isolated photon can also be used to extract the gluon Sivers function via Transverse Single Spin Asymmetries (TSSA), complementing the possible study of low-pT C-even quarkonium TSSA. Finally, I will comment on the additional information which can be obtained through J/psi-pair production in both unpolarised and polarised proton-proton collisions, extending our previous work [3].

      Higgs and Drell-Yan production in high luminosity proton-proton collisions 25m Building D, Room D013

      Building D, Room D013

      University of Antwerp

      In the forthcoming high luminosity phase of the LHC many of the most interesting measurements for precision QCD studies are affected by large pile-up conditions. However, with the recently discovered Higgs boson, which couples in the heavy top limit directly to gluons, we have access to a novel production process to probe QCD by a colour-singlet current. In this study we compare observables in Higgs boson and Drell-Yan production and evaluate their stability with respect to pile-up effects. We present first attempts to apply various pile-up correction methods both to underlying event and to boson + jet event topologies, and compare Pythia8, Powheg and CASCADE event generator predictions to demonstrate the sensitivity to different multiple-parton radiation mechanisms.

The presented method gives a new viewpoint on the web diagrams and proves the non-Abelian exponentiation theorem.
