Odderon observation: explanations and answers to questions/objections regarding the PRL publication

  title={Odderon observation: explanations and answers to questions/objections regarding the PRL publication},
  author={Kenneth Osterberg},
The odderon observation recently published by the D0 and TOTEM collaborations has been widely accepted by a majority of the particle physics community and its importance recognized through dedicated physics seminars in the world major labs and physics institute. Naturally also some questions and objections have been raised, either privately or publicly, in discussion sessions and articles. In this proceedings article, a comprehensive list of these questions and objections are answered and…

Recent results from the TOTEM collaboration and the discovery of the odderon

We describe the most recent results from the TOTEM collaboration on elastic, inelastic and total cross sections as well as the odderon discovery by the D0 and TOTEM collaborations. In this short



Odderon effects in the differential cross-sections at Tevatron and LHC energies

In the present paper, we extend the Froissaron-Maximal Odderon (FMO) approach at t different from 0. Our extended FMO approach gives an excellent description of the 3266 experimental points

Elastic and diffractive scattering at the LHC

Odderon Exchange from Elastic Scattering Differences between pp and pp[over ¯] Data at 1.96 TeV and from pp Forward Scattering Measurements.

An analysis comparing the pp[over ¯] elastic cross section as measured by the D0 Collaboration and the TOTEM Collaboration at a center-of-mass energy of 1.96 TeV to that in pp collisions using a model-independent approach provides evidence for the t-channel exchange of a colorless, C-odd gluonic compound, also known as the odderon.

Coulomb-nuclear interference in elastic scattering: eikonal calculation to all orders of $\alpha$

The Coulomb-nuclear interference (CNI) has recently been used by the TOTEM Collaboration to analyse proton-proton elastic-scattering data from the LHC and to draw physics conclusions. This paper will

Bethe phase including proton excitations

We evaluate the contribution of inelastic intermediate states (such as p → N excitations) to the phase between the one-photon-exchange and the “nuclear” high energy pp scattering amplitudes as t →

Small t elastic scattering and the ρ parameter

Measurement of Elastic pp Scattering at √ s = 8 TeV in the Coulomb-Nuclear Interference Region – Determination of the ρ-Parameter and the Total Cross-Section The TOTEM Collaboration

The TOTEM Collaboration G. Antcheva, P. Aspell, I. Atanassova, V. Avati, J. Smajek, W. Snoeys, and E. Redaelli present a state-of-the-art virtual reality system that automates the very labor-intensive and therefore time-heavy and expensive process of manually cataloging and cataloging individual neurons.

Coulombic-hadronic interference in an eikonal model

The problem of extracting the phase of the hadronic proton-proton scattering amplitude from its interference with the Coulombic amplitude near the forward direction is re-examined using an eikonal
