Particle Production at NLO in the Hybrid Formalism Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • We reconsider the perturbative next-to-leading calculation of single inclusive hadron production in the framework of the hybrid formalism, applied to hadron production in proton– nucleus collisions. We introduce the explicit requirement that fast fluctuations in the projectile wave function which only exists for a short time are not resolved by the target. This Ioffe time cut-off also strongly affects the next-to-leading order terms.
