Diffraction at HERA , Color Opacity and Nuclear Shadowing

  author={Leonid L. Frankfurt and Mark I. Strikman},
We calculate nuclear shadowing and Q 2 dependence of gluon densities within the framework of the Gribov theory of nuclear shadowing using as input recent HERA data on diffractive dijet and charm production in deep inelastic ep scattering. We explain that in the case of the deuteron and of the light nuclei (A ≤ 12) theoretical uncertainties in the… CONTINUE READING
