High-Energy QCD and Wilson Lines

At high energies the particles move very fast so their trajectories can be approximated by straight lines collinear to their velocities. The proper degrees of freedom for the fast gluons moving along the straight lines are the Wilson lines -- infinite gauge factors ordered along the straight line. I discuss the small-x evolution and the high-energy effective action in terms of Wilson-line degrees of freedom.
