abstract

  • Abstract The JIMWLK Hamiltonian for high energy evolution of QCD amplitudes is presented at the next-to-leading order accuracy in $\alpha_s $. The general form of the Hamiltonian is deduced from the symmetries and the structure of the hadronic light cone wavefunction. The independent functional kernels are then extracted by comparing the rapidity evolution of the quark dipole and the three-quark singlet states generated by this Hamiltonian with the corresponding results available in the literature.
