Nuclear Physics & RIKEN Theory Seminar

"Saturation and Confinement: Pomeron, Odderon, and AdS/CFT"

Presented by Chung-I Tan, Brown University

Friday, March 6, 2009, 2:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

In 1/Nc expansion, analyticity and crossing lead to crossing even and odd (C = ±1) vacuum exchanges at high-energy, the Pomeron and the Odderon. We discuss how, using String/Gauge duality, these can be identified with the closed string Reggeized graviton and the anti-symmetric Kalb-Ramond fields in AdS background. With confinement, these Regge singularities interpolate with glueball states. We also discuss unitarization and saturation based on eikonal sum in AdS.
