Saturation in small-x and heavy-ion physics
Physics Department, Columbia University, NY 10027, New York, USA
The idea of parton saturation is reviewed. The use of saturation in describing HERA data is discussed in the context of the McLerran-Venugopalan and Golec-Biernat Wüsthoff models. Applications of saturation ideas to RHIC data are reviewed and a comparison between applications at HERA and at RHIC is given.
