Demanding the analyticity of hadronic observables (calculated in terms of power series of the running coupling) as a whole, we show that they are free of the Landau singularity. Employing resummation and dispersion-relation techniques, we compute in a unifying way power corrections to two different hard-scattering functions in perturbative QCD: the… (More)

A numerical program is presented which facilitates a computation pertaining to the full set of one-gluon loop diagrams (including ghost loop contributions), with M attached external gluon lines in all possible ways. The feasibility of such a task rests on a suitably defined master formula, which is expressed in terms of a set of Grassmann and a set of… (More)

Worldline techniques are employed to study the general behaviour of the fermionfermion collision amplitude at very high energies in a non-abelian gauge field theory for the forward and fixed angle scattering cases. A central objective of this work is to demonstrate the simplicity by which the worldline methodology isolates that sector of the full theory… (More)

A theoretical scheme which relates multiparticle states generated in ultrarelativistic nuclear collisions to a QCD phase transition is considered in the framework of the universality class provided by the 3-D Ising model. Two different evolution scenarios for the QGP system are examined. The statistical mechanics of the critical state is accounted for in… (More)

We employ the Polyakov world-line path-integral version of QCD to identify and resum at leading perturbative order enhanced radiative gluon contributions to the Drell-Yan type (qq̄ pair annihilation) cross-sections. We emphasize that this is the first time that world-line techniques are applied to cross-section calculations.… (More)

The worldline casting of a gauge field system with spin-1/2 matter fields has provided a, particle-based, first quantization formalism in the framework of which the Bern-Kosower algorithms for efficient computations in QCD acquire a simple interpretation. This paper extends the scope of applicability of the worldline scheme so as to include open fermionic… (More)

We consider a four-point process, associated with a wide-angle elastic scattering of two off-mass-shell spin-1/2 matter particles, in a non-abelian gauge theory. On the basis of a worldline approach, which reverts the functional to a path-integral description of the system, we factorize an eikonal (“soft”) subsector of the full theory and calculate the… (More)

The Polyakov world-line path integral describing the propagation of gluon field quanta is constructed by employing the background gauge fixing method and is subsequently applied to analytically compute the divergent terms of the one (gluonic) loop effective action to fourth order in perturbation theory. The merits of the proposed approach is that, to a… (More)

Adopting as working assumption that the conformal group O(4,2) of Minkowski space, being the largest symmetry group which respects its light cone structure, is the appropriate global symmetry underlying the description of relativistic systems, it is shown that AdS5 uniquely emerges as the space on the boundary of which a corresponding relativistic field… (More)

The spin-field interaction is considered, in the context of the gauge fields/string correspondence, in the large ’t Hooft coupling limit. The latter can be viewed as a WKB-type approximation to the AdS/CFT duality conjecture. Basic theoretical objects entering the present study are (a) the Wilson loop functional, on the gauge field side and (b) the sigma… (More)
