Perturbative Odderon in the Color Glass Condensate
Brookhaven National Laboratory
We study the perturbative odderon (C-odd compound state of reggeized gluons) exchange in high energy hadron collisions within the effective theory for the Color Glass Condensate (CGC) endowed with the functional, JIMWLK, evolution equation. We derive small-x evolution equations for gauge invariant scattering amplitudes describing odderon exchanges between the CGC and two types of projectiles; a color dipole and a system of three quarks ('proton'). In the linear regime at relatively low energy, our equations are shown to reduce to the Bartels-Kwiecinski-Praszalowicz equation. Our gauge invariant evolution equations stay explicitly outside the Mobius representation where the BFKL Hamiltonian exhibits holomorphic separability.
