Fits to high energy data alone cannot cleanly discriminate between asymptotic ln s and ln 2 s behavior of total hadronic cross sections. We demonstrate that this is no longer true when we require that these amplitudes also describe, on average, low energy data dominated by resonances. We simultaneously fit real analytic amplitudes to high energy measurements of: 1) the π + p and π − p total cross sections and ρ-values (ratio of the real to the imaginary portion of the forward scattering… CONTINUE READING
