Pomeron and Odderon from TGD Viewpoint

Matti Pitkänen


Pomeron is part of low energy phenomenology of hadron physics and emerged already about half century ago in the so called Regge theory to explain the logarithmically rising (rather than decreasing) cross sections in proton-proton and proton-antiproton collisions. Odderon is a cousin of Pomeron. Since the charge parity (see is  C = 1 for Pomeron C = -1 for Odderon, these states are analogous to pion with spin 0 and ρ meson with spin 1. Perturbative QCD cannot say much about these objects. In this article, these objects are discussed in the picture of low energy hadron physics provided by TGD.
