Unintegrated gluon densities in the LDC model

To be published in the proceedings of the DIS 2004 Workshop on Deep Inelastic Scattering, Štrbské Pleso, Slovakia, April, 2004.

I describe briefly the Linked Dipole Chain reformulation of the CCFM formalism and how to obtain unintegrated gluon densities within this model. I show some results where these densities are used to describe heavy quark production at the Tevatron and to predict the production of central exclusive Higgs at the LHC. The results turn out to be very sensitive to the treatment of non-leading terms, in particular the non-singular terms in the gluon splitting function.
