Abstract

In this paper we study the high energy behavior of electroweak Standard Model for a nonzero Weinberg angle θW. We evaluate the spectrum of the electroweak Pomeron and demonstrate that the leading intercept is given by αe.w.4ln2 and does not depend on the mixing angle θW. Due to its very small numerical value, we conclude that the high energy behavior of electroweak theory cannot be discussed without including the QCD Pomeron which, at sufficiently large energies, will dominate.
