The first meeting of the Saturated Glue (SURGE) Topical Collaboration.
Collaboration mission: Discover and explore the gluon saturation regime of quantum chromodynamics by advancing calculations to high precision and developing a comprehensive framework to compute observables and compare to a wide range of experimental data, including predictions for the Electron Ion Collider (EIC).
A realistic goal in small x studies is 10% accuracy. This is driven by the fact that process-dependent so-called “impact factors” for key final states are progressing towards next-to-leading order (NLO) accuracy; likewise, there is progress in computing small-x evolution equations to next-to-leading logarithmic accuracy. We will also discuss reducing uncertainties in initial conditions, spin dynamics and parton fragmentation to this required level.
