Consequence of isospin conservation in nucleon-nucleon scattering

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Isospin conservation in nucleon-nucleon scattering leads to an extension of the optical theorem to backward angles. The total neutron-proton and proton-proton cross sections are related to the imaginary parts of the neutron-proton amplitudes at backward angles. We suggest to incorporate the above relations in the phase shift analysis, especially above 600 MeV lab energy were dibaryons are suspected to exist.
