We present an effective-theory inspired method to include off-shell effects for the production and subsequent decay of heavy unstable particles at the LHC.
36. The high energy limit of QCD: kT-factorization and exclusive production cross-sections at the LHC
We investigate LHC production cross-sections, using NLO BFKL resummation and kT-factorization. As a particular process we consider the completely differential production of heavy flavors. Unintegrated gluon densities are constructed as a convolution of BFKL Green's function and non-perturbative proton impact factor for which we study different models. The whole setup is presented in kT space,...
