Double diffraction dissociation and test of pomeron factorization at the CERN ISR Academic Article uri icon


  • We report the observation of double diffraction dissociation in the process p + p → (pπ+π-) + X at √s of 45 GeV and momentum transfer in the -t range 0.15-0.53 GeV2 at the CERN ISR. The relative rates for elastic, single and double dissociation reactions measured here are found to agree with the prediction of Pomeron factorization. © 1975.
