Nonlinear Gluon Evolution And Photon Production In Hadronic Collisions

Mariotto, Cristiano Brenner; Gonçalves, Victor Paulo Barros


In this contribution we consider the influence of nonlinear gluon evolution in the production of prompt photons at the LHC pp collider. We consider the EHKQS parton distributions, which are based on the GLR-MQ evolution equations, and imply in an enhanced small-x gluon distribution at Q2 ≤ 10 GeV2 relative to the LO DGLAP gluon distribution. We find an enhancement of low-pT photons for both single and double photon production. Consequences of this effect for the Quark-Gluon Plasma searches and for the QCD background to Higgs are also discussed.
