Hard-soft Pomeron transition from QCD saturation in the dipole picture Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract: We pose the question: how far can we push the QCD dipole model and the idea of QCD saturation to the kinematical regions traditionally associated with soft nonperturbative physics? The answer is that it works sufficiently well allowing a smooth transition from hard (BFKL) pomeron to the soft one.
