Gluon distribution functions in the k(perpendicular to) -factorization approach
Publikation/Tidskrift/Serie: Journal of High Energy Physics
At small x, the effects of finite transverse momenta of partons inside a hadron become increasingly important, especially in analyses of jets and heavy-quark production. These effects can be systematically accounted for in a formalism based on k(perpendicular to)-factorization and unintegrated distribution functions. We present results for the unintegrated distribution function, together with the corresponding integrated one, obtained within the framework of the Linked Dipole Chain model. Comparisons are made to results obtained within other approaches.
