Diffractive Production of Dijets at HERA: A Simple Model

  • M. Diehl
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 350)


In Albert de Roeck’s lectures we have heard about an object called pomeron, which appears in certain processes at HERA. This talk is about a simple model of this object and its application to a particular process. I will first give a short introduction to the pomeron and to the reaction I propose to study. Then I will describe the Landshoff-Nachtmann model, which gives a simple description of the pomeron in QCD. In the third part I will present some predictions of this model for diffractive production of dijets at HERA, in photoproduction or in deep inelastic scattering. In the case of photoproduction the results are rather peculiar.
