The inclusive hadroproduction of two heavy quarks, featuring a large separation in rapidity, is proposed as a novel probe channel of the Balitsky–Fadin–Kuraev– Lipatov (BFKL) approach. In a theoretical setup which includes full resummation of leading logarithms in the centerof- mass energy and partial resummation of the next-toleading ones, predictions for the cross section and azimuthal coefficients are presented for kinematic configurations typical of current and possible future experimental analyses at the LHC.

Abstract

The inclusive hadroproduction of two heavy quarks, featuring a large separation in rapidity, is proposed as a novel probe channel of the Balitsky–Fadin–Kuraev– Lipatov (BFKL) approach. In a theoretical setup which includes full resummation of leading logarithms in the centerof- mass energy and partial resummation of the next-toleading ones, predictions for the cross section and azimuthal coefficients are presented for kinematic configurations typical of current and possible future experimental analyses at the LHC.
