Theoretical Studies in Medium and High Energy HadronNucleus and NucleusNucleus Collisions.
Abstract
The high energy diffraction theory due to Glauber is the basis for studies of a variety of nuclear collisions. The approximations leading to the theory of particlenucleus scattering are discussed, and its extension to nucleus  nucleus collisions is compared with an exact nucleusnucleus multiple scattering series. An exact solution is obtained for the charged hadrondeuteron scattering problem with both the incident hadron and the bound proton having extended charge distributions. Coulomb effects in scattering of charged hadrons from other nuclei are studied. Several frequently used approximate models are considered and their accuracy assessed. The problem of deuteron scattering from complex nuclei is addressed. The effects on elastic scattering intensities due to Coulomb field and the quadrupole deformation of the deuteron are investigated. The general case of nucleusnucleus collisions is explored.
