Charge transfer in diffractive excitation models

  • H. B. Low

We have calculated the charge transfer distributions and its dispersions in single and double diffractive excitation models and compared them with experimental results of pp collisions at 205 GeV/c. The double diffractive excitation model is closer to the experimental data, but we like to emphasize that, on the basis of diffractive excitation models alone, it is impossible to explain the overall charge transfer in multiparticle reactions.


Si sono calcolate le distribuzioni e relative dispersioni del trasferimento di carica di modelli di eccitazione diffrattiva singola e doppia e si sono confrontate con i risultati sperimentali relativi agli urti pp a 205 GeV/c. Si trova che il modello di eccitazione diffrattiva doppia è più vicino ai risultati sperimentali, ma si vuole mettere in luce che basandosi solo su modelli di eccitazione diffrattiva non è possibile spiegare l’intero trasferimento di carica in reazioni fra molte particelle.
