Solving the JIMWLK equation

Robert Moerman will present the Department of Physics colloquium with a talk entitled, "Solving the JIMWLK equation".  

The JIMWLK equation is one of the most mathematically complex equations in high-energy QCD phenomenology. Presently, there exists no exact solution to this equation. However, over the past two years, our research group has developed a revolutionary technique for obtaining approximate solutions to the JIMWLK equation.

In this talk, Robert will provide an introduction to the JIMWLK equation, emphasizing its structure and the physics it describes. Thereafter, he will explain their novel approximation technique as well as discuss the potential impact of our work to other areas of high energy physics research.

This talk will be accessible to third-year and honours physics students.
