The role of double parton collisions in soft hadron interactions


Journal Article

We have examined charged multiplicities arising from p - p and p - pĚ„ collisions over the range of center of mass energies, √s, from 30 GeV to 1800 GeV. Results from Tevatron experiment E735 support the presence of double parton interactions. These processes can be seen to account for a large fraction of the increase in the non single diffraction inelastic cross section from energies of about 200 GeV to 1800 GeV. © 1998 Published by Elsevier Science B.V.
