“Reggeon Field Theory RFT as an Effective Theory for QCD in Regge Limit”

In this talk, I will discuss if in the Regge limit, Reggeon field theory might serve as an effective theory of high energy scattering for strong interaction. Using the Functional Renormalization approach I will present results about the critical properties of the RFT : Flow equation, fixed points conditions, critical exponents evaluation and discuss the effect of the truncation on this analysis.

Finally, I will discuss the anomalous dimension effect and physical applications
