Pomeron

[′päm·ə‚rän]
(particle physics)
A Regge pole which is located at + 1 in the angular momentum plane when the momentum transfer in the crossed channel equals zero, corresponding to the fact that total cross sections of reactions are observed to approach constants at high energies. Also known as Pomeranchuk pole.

Because of the rescattering dynamics, the DDIS amplitude acquires a complex phase from Pomeron and Regge exchange; thus final-state rescattering corrections lead to nontrivial "dynamical" contributions to the measured PDFs; that is, they are a consequence of the scattering process itself [80].
Two types of measurements will be planned to examine with high precision using the AFP [4749]: first, exploratory physics (anomalous couplings between [gamma] and W or Z bosons, exclusive production, etc.) and second, standard QCD physics (double Pomeron exchange, exclusive production in the jet channel, single diffraction, [gamma][gamma] physics, etc.).
The leading order background process comes from QCDinduced reactions (pomeron exchange).
In (24), [[sigma].sub.p] is the Born term given by Pomeron exchange with intercept [[alpha].sub.p](0) = l + [DELTA].
