Restrictions on pp scattering amplitude imposed by first diffraction minimum data obtained by TOTEM at LHC

We present systematic analysis of the behavior of elastic pp scattering cross section in the region of the diffraction peak and the first diffraction minimum in the framework of quasi-eikonal Gribov-Regge approach, taking into account the unitarity condition. We use the formalism taking into consideration the dependence of pomeron signature factor on t. We… CONTINUE READING
