BFKL ansatz for BK equation in conformal basis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

4 Scopus citations


The BK equation in the conformal basis is considered and analyzed. It is shown that at high energy a factorization of the coordinate and rapidity dependence should hold. This allows to simplify significantly the form of the equation under discussion. An analytical ansatz for the solution to the BK equation at high energies is proposed and analyzed. This analytical ansatz satisfies the initial condition at low energy and does not depend on both rapidity and the initial condition in the high energy limit. The case of the final rapidity being not too large is discussed and the properties of the transition region between small and large final rapidities have been studied.
