In this talk, I will examine the status of the JIMWLK evolution equation in relation to the effective density matrix of a high energy hadronic system. The high energy evolution of this density matrix which is associated with the Hilbert space completely spanned by color charge density operators has the form of Lindblad equation. The JIMWLK equation is reproduced by mapping this Lindblad type quantum mechanical equation onto the classical phase space of the system using Weyl’s correspondence rules.
