    • Abstract

       

      We affirm the power of the eikonal approximation in reggeon field theory (rft) and point out its merit as contrasted with renormalization group method for calculating reggeon self-energy correction due to pomeron exchanges. Relative merits ofrft andqcd in appropriate momentum regions of hadronic interactions are also examined to suggest a negative answer to the title.
