Title
Evolution of light-like Wilson loops with a self-intersection in loop space
Author
Abstract
Recently, we proposed a general evolution equation for single quadrilateral Wilson loops on the light-cone. In the present work, we study the energy evolution of a combination of two such loops that partially overlap or have a self-intersection. We show that, for a class of geometric variations, the evolution is consistent with our previous conjecture, and we are able to handle the intricacies associated with the self-intersections and overlaps. This way, a step forward is made towards the understanding of loop space, with the hope of studying more complicated structures appearing in phenomenological relevant objects, such as parton distributions.
