Overview

This monograph gives a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of hard and soft diffraction processes in strong interaction particle physics. The first part covers soft hadron—hadron scattering in a complete and mature presentation. It can be used as a textbook in particle physics classes. Chapters 8-11 address graduate students as well as researchers, covering hard diffraction and, in particular, deep inelastic scattering, and present very new results and experimental findings and their phenomenological interpretations. This should also attract readers involved in modern research work. The first part contains the optical analogy, the eikonal approximation of quantum mechanics, high-energy kinematics. The second is a review of "old diffraction" (Regge theory etc.), while the third part is devoted to the "new diffraction", the pomeron in QCD.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

This monograph is a very high quality up-to-date review of soft and hard diffraction processes in strong interaction physics. We can divide this very interesting book into two parts. The first part covers the Chapters 1-7 and can be used as a textbook in particle physics classes. The second part covers the Chapters 8-11 and can be used by graduate students as well as researchers. I think that this book is useful for every particle physicist. (Journal of Computational Methods in Sciences & Engineering)

"This monograph gives a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of soft and hard diffraction processes in strong interaction physics. … It can be used as a textbook in particle physics classes. … It presents recent results and experimental findings and their phenomenological interpretations. … addresses graduate students as well as researchers." (ETDE Energy Database, 2003)

"The purpose of the present book is to present the main insights which have mentioned the growth of high-energy diffractive physics in recent decades and also to present the recent state of the art. … This monograph is a very high quality up-to-date review of soft and hard diffraction processes in strong interaction physics. … I think that this book is useful for every particle physicists." (T. E. Simos, Journal of Computational Methods in Sciences and Engineering, Vol. 3 (1), 2003)
