Description

We present a new method to systematically calculate corrections to the eikonal approximation in the background field formalism. We calculate the subleading power-suppressed corrections due to the finite width of the target to first and second orders. The method is of generic applicability. As a first example, we study both polarized and unpolarized gluon production in pA collisions.
