A consistent treatment of spin dependence at high energies in an eikonal picture of pp elastic scattering

We present an improved theoretical eikonal model for the spin dependence in scattering at very high energies. The model corresponds to a unitarity-type sum of ladder diagrams, and the resultant spin structure has quite remarkable properties.

Спиновая эависимость упругого рр рассеяния при высоких знергиях в зйкональном приближении


Мы предлагаем улучщенную теоретическую зйкональную модель для спиновой эависимости рассеяния при очень высоких знергиях. Эта модель соответствует сумме лестничных диаграмм и реэультируюшая спиновая структура обладает весьма интересными свойствами.


Si presenta un modello teorico eiconale migliorato per la dipendenza dallo spin nello scattering ad energie molto elevate. Il modello corrisponde a una somma di diagrammi a scalini del tipo unitario, e la risultante struttura di spin ha proprietà notevoli.
