Andersen, J. R., & Stirling, W. J. (2003). Energy consumption and jet multiplicity from the leading log BFKL evolution..
We study the associated jet multiplicity arising from t–channel BFKL gluon evolution in forward dijet production at hadron colliders. Previous results have shown that the effect of conserving overall energy and momentum is to introduce a pdf suppression that completely compensates the predicted exponential BFKL rise with rapidity difference between the leading dijets. However, we show that there is still expected to be a significant amount of BFKL radiation, especially in the central region, and we give predictions for the multiplicity of the resulting mini–jets at the LHC.
