Description

A model for exclusive diffractive resonance production in proton-proton
collisions at the LHC is presented. Cross sections are calculated by folding
the Pomeron-Pomeron total cross section ($^{*}$) with the Donnachie-Landshoff
parameterisation of the Pomeron flux in the proton($^{**}$). The single differential
cross section dsigma/dM as well as the double differential cross section
dsigma/dMdp_T will be shown for the resonances f0(980) and f2(1270).
The range of x-values of the Pomeron flux accessible in these measurements
will be addressed.
