A New Qualitative Prediction of the Parton Model for High-Energy Hadron Collisions

Inclusive single jet production in hadron collisions is considered. It is shown that the QCD parton model predicts a nonmonotonic dependence of the inclusive cross section on the fraction of the energy deposited in the jet registered, if it is normalized on the same cross section measured at another collision energy. Specifically, if the cross section is normalized by the one measured at a higher collision energy, it possesses a minimum which depends on jet rapidity. This prediction can be tested at the Fermilab Tevatron, at the CERN LHC, and at the Very Large Hadron Collider under discussion.
