In the first chapter we give an introduction to hard diffractive scattering in QCD to introduce basic concepts and terminology. In the second chapter we make predictions for the evolution of skewed parton distributions in a proton in the LLA. We calculate the DGLAP-type evolution kernels in the LLA and solve the skewed GLAP evolution equations with a modified version of the CTEQ-package. In the third chapter, we discuss the algorithms used in the LO evolution program for skewed parton… 


Diffractive Exclusive Photon Production in DIS at HERA
We demonstrate that perturbative QCD allows one to calculate the absolute cross section of diffractive exclusive production of photons at large $Q^2$ at HERA, while the aligned jet model allows one
Restricted conformal invariance in QCD and its predictive power for virtual two-photon processes
The conformal algebra provides powerful constraints, which guarantee that renormalized conformally covariant operators exist in the hypothetical conformal limit of the theory, where the
An introduction to Regge theory and high-energy physics
Originally published in 1977, this book presents an extended introduction to the theory of hadrons, the elementary particles which occur in the atomic nucleus. The main emphasis is on the theory of
One-loop QCD corrections to deeply-virtual Compton scattering: The parton helicity-independent case
We show that the one-loop QCD correction to deeply virtual Compton scattering can be factorized into finite perturbative contributions and collinearly divergent terms, which correspond to the matrix
Choosing the renormalization/factorization scale (QCD)
The basic issue is that all perturbative calculations involve a truncated expansion. For calculations to have predictive power, one must have some idea of the errors due to omission of uncalculated
