An Updated Analysis on the Rise of the Hadronic Total Cross-Section at the Lhc Energy Region
pp elastic scattering above 5 GeV is presented. The dataset includes the recent high-precision TOTEM measurements of the pp total and elastic (integrated) cross-sections at 7 TeV and 8 TeV. Following
Interpretation of the measurements of total, elastic, and diffractive cross sections at LHC
Recently at LHC one has obtained measurements of the total, elastic, and diffractive cross sections in pp collisions at very high energy. The total cross section is in good agreement with predictions
A study on analytic parametrizations for proton–proton cross-sections and asymptotia
A comparative study on some representative parametrizations for the total and elastic cross-sections as a function of energy is presented. The dataset comprises pp and scattering in the c.m. energy
Interplay of total cross sections and ratios of real to imaginary parts of hadron amplitudes
The impact of different assumptions about high energy behavior of the total cross section of proton-proton interactions on the ratio of the real to imaginary part of the forward elastic scattering
On the rise of proton–proton cross-sections at high energies
The rise of total, elastic and inelastic hadronic cross sections at high energies is investigated by means of an analytical parametrization, with the exponent of the leading logarithm contribution as
Introduction to the physics of the total cross section at LHC
AbstractThis review describes the development of the physics of hadronic cross sections up to recent LHC results and cosmic ray experiments. We present here a comprehensive review – written with a
Elastic scattering in geometrical model
Leading components in forward elastic hadron scattering: Derivative dispersion relations and asymptotic uniqueness
Forward amplitude analyses constitute an important approach in the investigation of the energy dependence of the total hadronic cross-section $\sigma_{tot}$ and the $\rho$ parameter. The standard


Proton opacity in the light of LHC diffractive data
We show that collider data on elastic pp (and $p\bar{p}$) scattering, including the LHC TOTEM data at 7 TeV, can be well described by a 3-channel eikonal model with only one Pomeron, with parameters
What do experimental data “say” about growth of hadronic total cross-sections?
SummaryWe reanalyse pp and pp high-energy data of the elastic scattering above √s45GeV on the total cross-section σtot and on the forward σ-ratio for various models of pomeron, utilizing two methods.
Analyticity as a robust constraint on the total cross section at the CERN Large Hadron Collider
It is well known that high energy data alone do not discriminate between asymptotic lns and ln{sup 2}s behavior of pp and pp cross sections. By exploiting high quality low energy data, analyticity
Asymptotic High Energy Total Cross Sections and Theories with Extra Dimensions
The rate at which cross sections grow with energy is sensitive to the presence of extra dimensions in a rather model-independent fashion. We examine how rates would be expected to grow if there are
Elastic scattering at larget
AbstractRecent data forpp elastic scattering at large momentum transfer find a behaviour close tot−8, independent of energy, throughout the ISR energy range. This behaviour is in agreement with the
Experimental confirmation that the proton is asymptotically a black disk.
The results suggest that the lowest-lying glueball mass is 2.97 ± 0.03 GeV in QCD; the hypotheses of analyticity and unitarity over the center of mass energy range 6 ≤ √s ≤ 57000 GeV are discussed.
