Recent results for the total and inelastic hadronic cross-sections from LHC experiments are compared with predictions from a single channel PDF driven eikonal mini-jet model and from an empirical model. The role of soft gluon resummation in the infrared region in taming the rise of mini-jets and their contribution to the increase of the total cross-sections at high energies are discussed. Survival probabilities at LHC, whose theoretical estimates range from circa 10 percent to a few per mille…

Model of diffractive excitation in pp collisions at high energies

A phenomenological model for the description of the single and double diffractive excitation in $pp$ collisions at high energies is presented. Considering the Good -- Walker approach, we propose a

Rapidity gap survival in enhanced Pomeron scheme

The phenomenological Reggeon field theory framework is applied to investigate rapidity gap survival (RGS) probability for diffractive dijet production in proton–proton collisions and it is demonstrated that contributions to elastic rescatterings of intermediate partons in the underlying parton cascades play a subdominant role.

Multiple interactions and rapidity gap survival

Observations of rare processes containing large rapidity gaps at high energy colliders may be exceptionally informative. However the cross sections of these events are small in comparison with that

Forward elastic scattering: dynamical gluon mass and semihard interactions

The role of low-x parton dynamics in dictating the high-energy behavior of forward scattering observables at LHC energies is investigated using a QCD-based model with even-under-crossing amplitude
