QCD at High Energies and Two-Dimensional Field Theory

  title={QCD at High Energies and Two-Dimensional Field Theory},
  author={Herman L. Verlinde},
Previous studies of high-energy scattering in QCD have shown a remarkable correspondence with two-dimensional field theory. In this paper we formulate a simple effective model in which this two-dimensional nature of the interactions is manifest. Starting from the (3+1)-dimensional Yang-Mills action, we implement the high energy limit s >> t via a scaling argument and we derive from this a simplified effective theory. This effective theory is still (3+1)-dimensional, but we show that its… CONTINUE READING
