Virtual photon scattering at high energies as a probe of the short distance Pomeron

Abstract:

Perturbative QCD predicts the behavior of scattering at high energies and fixed (sufficiently large) transferred momenta in terms of the BFKL Pomeron (or short distance Pomeron). We study the prospects for testing these predictions in two-photon processes at CERN LEP 200 and a possible future ee collider. We argue that the total cross section for scattering two photons sufficiently far off shell provides a clean probe of BFKL dynamics. The photons act as color dipoles with small transverse si...
