In this contribution we study the photoproduction of heavy quarks in coherent proton-nucleus (pA) and nucleus-nucleus (AA) interactions for RHIC and LHC energies and analyze if this process can be used to determine the QCD dynamics at high energies. The integrated cross section and rapidity distribution are estimated. Our results indicate that the nonlinear(More)
The behavior of ep/pp scattering in the limit of high center-of-mass energy √ s and fixed momentum transfer is one of the outstanding open questions in the theory of the strong interactions. In the late 1970s, Lipatov and collaborators [1] established the papers which form the core of our knowledge of Regge limit (high energy limit) of Quantum(More)
The AGL equation includes all multiple pomeron exchanges in the double logarithmic approximation (DLA) limit, leading to an unitarized gluon distribution in the small x regime. This equation was originally obtained using the Glauber-Mueller approach. We demonstrate in this paper that the AGL equation and, consequently, the GLR equation, can also be obtained(More)

Understanding the behavior of high energy hadron reactions from a fundamental perspective within QCD is an important goal of particle physics. The behavior of scattering in the limit of high energy and fixed momentum transfer is described in QCD, at least in situations in which perturbation applies, by the Balitskii-Fadin-KuraevLipatov (BFKL) Pomeron [1].(More)
We study the predictions of CGC physics for electron-ion collisions at high energies. The nucleus at high energies acts as an amplifier of saturation effects. We have investigated some observables, using a generalization for nuclear targets of the Iancu-Itakura-Munier model, and our results indicate that the experimental analysis of these observables in the(More)
