Phenomenological Analysis of the Pomeron-f Complex in Hadron Total Cross Sections

Hacınlıyan, Avadis
Total cross sections in the range 6≤pL≤280 GeV/c are phenomenologically analyzed in order to extract symmetry properties of the Pomeron-f complex. The compatibility of a two component Pomeron with the second component contributing to NN, πN and KN cross sections in the ratio 9 : 4 : 2 is shown. It is found that ω-f exchange degeneracy critically depends on both f and Pomeron universality. Finally, it is demonstrated that one may interpret the Pomeron contribution as an enhances cut and the f contribution as a half-enhanced cut as calculated by Gribov.
