Abstract. We demonstrate that all the known single- and double-logarithm summations for a parton distribution function can be unified in the Collins–Soper resummation technique by applying soft approximations appropriate in different kinematic regions to real gluon emissions. Neglecting the gluon longitudinal momentum, we obtain the $k_{\mathrm{T}}$ (double-logarithm) resummation for two-scale QCD processes, and the Balitsky–Fadin–Kuraev–Lipatov (single-logarithm) equation for one-scale…

The evolution of the small x gluon TMD

A bstractWe study the evolution of the small x gluon transverse momentum dependent (TMD) distribution in the dilute limit. The calculation has been carried out in the Ji-Ma-Yuan scheme using a simple

Gluon TMD in particle production from low to moderate x

A bstractWe study the rapidity evolution of gluon transverse momentum dependent distributions appearing in processes of particle production and show how this evolution changes from small to moderate

Joint resummation for pion wave function and pion transition form factor

A bstractWe construct an evolution equation for the pion wave function in the kT factorization formalism, whose solution sums the mixed logarithm ln x ln kT to all orders, with x (kT) being a parton

Gluonic contribution to $B\to \eta^{(\prime)}$ form factors

We calculate the flavor-singlet contribution to the $B\to\eta^{(\prime)}$ transition form factors from the gluonic content of the $\eta^{(\prime)}$ meson in the large-recoil region using the

B meson wave function in k(T) factorization

We study the asymptotic behavior of the B meson wave function in the framework of k{sub T} factorization theorem. We first construct a definition of the k{sub T}-dependent B meson wave function,

Asymmetry in the low-energy electron ejection from colliding neutral atoms

A strong forward-backward asymmetry of the soft electron peak induced by the impact of heavy neutral projectiles is predicted. This is quite independent of any post collisional two-centre effect. It
