Quark Reggeization from Effective Field Theory

We derive in the framework of soft collinear effective field theory (SCET) a Lagrangian describing the t-channel exchange of Glauber quarks, which are incorporated through fermionic potential operators in the effective theory. The Wilson line structure of the operators, which is derived from matching calculations and the symmetries of the effective theory, describe additional soft and collinear emissions from a fermionic t-channel exchange in the forward scattering limit to all orders. Lightcone singularities in the fermionic potential are regulated using a rapidity regulator, whose corresponding renormalization group evolution gives rise to the quark reggeization at amplitude level.
