Integral equation for spin dependent unintegrated parton distributions incorporating double ln^2(1/x) effects at low x
Jan Kwiecinski (Cracow, INP), Martin Maul (Lund U.)
In this paper we derive an integral equation for the evolution of unintegrated (longitudinally) polarized quark and gluon parton distributions. The conventional CCFM framework is extended at small x in order to incorporate the QCD expectations concerning the double ln^2(1/x) resummation at low x for the integrated distributions. Complete Altarelli-Parisi splitting functions are included, that makes the formalism compatible with the LO Altarelli-Parisi evolution at large and moderately small values of x. The obtained modified polarized CCFM equation is shown to be partially diagonalized by the Fourier-Bessel transform. Results of the numerical solution for this modified CCFM equation for the non-singlet quark distributions are presented.
