Effective transverse radius of nucleon in high-energy elastic diffractive scatteringApr 09 2015Apr 13 2016High-energy elastic diffraction of nucleons is considered in the framework of the simplest Regge-eikonal approximation. It is demonstrated explicitly that the effective transverse radius of nucleon in this nonperturbative regime is $\sim 0.2\div 0.3$ ... More

Current stage of understanding and description of hadronic elastic diffractionMar 27 2012Oct 08 2013Current stage of development of the high-energy elastic diffractive scattering phenomenology is reviewed. Verification of various theoretical models via comparison of their predictions with the recent D0 and TOTEM data on the nucleon-nucleon total and ... More

Type I Superconductivity upon Monopole Condensation in Seiberg-Witten TheoryDec 27 2000Sep 15 2001We study the confinement scenario in N=2 supersymmetric SU(2) gauge theory near the monopole point upon breaking of N=2 supersymmetry by the adjoint matter mass term. We confirm claims made previously that the Abrikosov-Nielsen-Olesen string near the ... More

General Superfield Quantization Method. I. Lagrangian Formalism of $θ$-Superfield Theory of FieldsOct 22 2002Dec 11 2003The rules to construct Lagrangian formulation for $\theta$-superfield theory of fields ($\theta$-STF) are introduced and considered on the whole in the framework of new superfield quantization method for general gauge theories. Algebraic, group-theoretic ... More
