The dual absorptive model and unitarity

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

2 Scopus citations


The unitarity content of amplitudes whose parameter profile is peripheral is shown to be dominated by contributions of inelastic intermediate states. This explains the approximate equality of elastic cross sections for ab → ab and ab → ab at rather low energies.
