Large-angle compton scattering in perturbative QCD

Ezio Maina, Glennys R. Farrar

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The processes γp→γp and γn→γn are studied in perturbative QCD for large scattering angles. The unpolarized cross sections, as well as the cross sections for polarized beams and targets, are given for various choices of the baryon wavefunction. The predictions for the unpolarized cross section of γp→γp are compared with the available data. Possible future experimental verifications of the theory are discussed.
