## Abstract

A critical review of the applications of QCD to low- and high-pT interactions of two photons is presented. The advantages of the two-photon high-pT tests over corresponding hadronic beam and/or target tests of QCD are given particular emphasis.

- 19.Experimental points are from R. Stronowski, SLAC Summer Institute on Particle Physics (1979). Experimental references can be obtained there. TheV-s = 31/ = 53 neff extractions are removed from Stronowski's graph. A different range of PT is being probed compared to the Vs-= 53/yrs = 62 extractions (at x
_{T}=.4, PT = 6 to 10 vs. PT = 10 to 12). More higher twist-CIM component is expected (and seen) in the lower Y's extraction; correcting for this yields approximate agreement between the two extractions. I have also added to Stronowski's graph recent n_{eff}values obtained by the Athens, Athens, Brookhaven, CERN collaboration (A^{2}BC), C. Kourkoumelis et al., CERN-EP/80-07.Google Scholar - 20.See R.
