Diffractive Cross-Sections in Herwig

Sep 10, 2020, 9:00 AM


Patrick Kirchgaesser


We implement a model for diffractive cross-section in Herwig.
We combine this model with a two-channel eikonal model including enhanced
pomeron contributions and compare the result to cross section measurements
at 7 TeV and 8 TeV. We further discuss an analytical expression which relates
unresolved cross sections (pomeron exchanges) to resolved cross sections (soft, hard, diffractive).
