Diffractive production and hadron structure

S. Nussinov, J. Szwed

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Analysis of diffractive production on nuclei implied cross sections of the diffractively produced system on nucleons which are smaller than the corresponding projectile nucleon cross sections. We provide a natural explanation for this feature in the Good-Walker coherent production formalism. A specific realization of the Good-Walker formalism stated in terms of quarks and connecting electric flux tubes and some ensuing consequences are also discussed briefly.
