Abstract

We identify an integrable one-dimensional inhomogeneous three-site open spin chain which arises in the problem of diagonalization of twist-three quark-gluon evolution equations in QCD in the chiral-odd sector. Making use of the existence of a non-trivial 'hidden' integral of motion the problem of diagonalization of the evolution kernels is reduced to the study of a second-order finite-difference equation which is solved in WKB approximation for large conformal spins of the three-particle system. The energies (alias anomalous dimensions) of eigenstates with different scale dependence are found in limiting cases and compared with numerical calculations.
