We develop a numerical method to nonperturbatively study scattering and gluon emission of a quark from a colored target using a light-front Hamiltonian approach. The target is described as a classical color field, as in the color glass condensate effective theory. The Fock space of the scattering system is restricted to the |q⟩+|qg⟩ sectors, but the time evolution of this truncated system is solved exactly. This method allows us to study the interplay between coherence and multiple scattering in gluon emission. It could be applied both to studying subeikonal effects in high-energy scattering and to understanding jet quenching in a hot plasma.

Spectral function for overoccupied gluodynamics from real-time lattice simulations Boguslavski, Kirill; Kurkela, A.; Lappi, Tuomas; Peuron, Jarkko (American Physical Society, 2018)We study the spectral properties of a highly occupied non-Abelian nonequilibrium plasma appearing ubiquitously in weak coupling descriptions of QCD matter. The spectral function of this far-fromequilibrium plasma is ...
The importance of kinematic twists and genuine saturation effects in dijet production at the Electron-Ion Collider Boussarie, Renaud; Mäntysaari, Heikki; Salazar, Farid; Schenke, Björn (Springer, 2021)We compute the differential yield for quark anti-quark dijet production in high-energy electron-proton and electron-nucleus collisions at small x as a function of the relative momentum P⊥ and momentum imbalance k⊥ of the ...
Highly occupied gauge theories in 2 + 1 dimensions : a self-similar attractor Boguslavski, K.; Kurkela, A.; Lappi, T.; Peuron, J. (American Physical Society, 2019)Motivated by the boost-invariant Glasma state in the initial stages in heavy-ion collisions, we perform classical-statistical simulations of SU(2) gauge theory in 2+1 dimensional space-time both with and without a scalar ...
Ultrarelativistic quark-nucleus scattering in a light-front Hamiltonian approach Li, Meijian; Zhao, Xingbo; Maris, Pieter; Chen, Guangyao; Li, Yang; Tuchin, Kirill; Vary, James P. (American Physical Society, 2020)We investigate the scattering of a quark on a heavy nucleus at high energies using the time-dependent basis light-front quantization (tBLFQ) formalism, which is the first application of the tBLFQ formalism in QCD. We present ...
Use of a running coupling in the NLO calculation of forward hadron production Ducloue, Bertrand; Iancu, E.; Lappi, Tuomas; Mueller, A. H.; Soyez, G.; Triantafyllopoulos, D. N.; Zhu, Yan (American Physical Society, 2018)We address and solve a puzzle raised by a recent calculation  of the cross section for particle production in proton-nucleus collisions to next-to-leading order: the numerical results show an unreasonably large dependence ...
