About this book

Introduction

This monograph gives a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of soft and hard diffraction processes in strong interaction physics. The first part covers the general formalism (the optical analogy, the eikonal picture, high-energy kinematics, S-matrix theory) and soft hadron--hadron scattering (including the Regge theory) in a complete and mature presentation. It can be used as a textbook in particle physics classes. The remainder of the book is devoted to the "new diffraction": the pomeron in QCD, low-x physics, diffractive deep inelastic scattering and related processes, jet production etc. It presents recent results and experimental findings and their phenomenological interpretations. This part addresses graduate students as well as researchers.

Reviews

From the reviews:

This monograph is a very high quality up-to-date review of soft and hard diffraction processes in strong interaction physics. We can divide this very interesting book into two parts. The first part covers the Chapters 1-7 and can be used as a textbook in particle physics classes. The second part covers the Chapters 8-11 and can be used by graduate students as well as researchers. I think that this book is useful for every particle physicist. (Journal of Computational Methods in Sciences & Engineering)
