Small-x QCD effects in forward-jet and Mueller-Navelet jet production
C. Marquet, C. Royon
We investigate small−x QCD effects in forward-jet production in deep inelastic scattering in the
kinematic regime where the virtuality of the photon and the transverse momentum of the jet are two 
hard scales of about the same magnitude. We show that the data from HERA published by the H1
and ZEUS collaborations are well described by leading-logarithmic BFKL predictions. Parametrizations 
containing saturation effects expected to be relevant at higher energies also compare well to the 
present data. We extend our analysis to Mueller-Navelet jets at the LHC and discuss to what extent 
this observable could test these small−x effects and help distinguishing between the different descriptions.
