Shadowing corrections and diffractive production in DIS on nuclei Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract We calculate, in the Glauber–Mueller approach, the ratio of the diffractive dissociation cross section to the total cross section for nuclei. We observe that shadowing corrections (SC) in the calculated σ diff/σ tot ratio are significant, but they do not lead to a smooth energy dependence of the ratio for a proton target as was observed at HERA.
