We calculate cross section for both single-parton scattering (SPS) using the ALPGEN code as well as for double-parton scattering (DPS) in leading-order collinear approach. Our results are compared with experimental ... More

Exclusive scalar $f_0(1500)$ meson production for energy ranges available at the GSI Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (GSI-FAIR) and at the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC)Jun 01 2009We evaluate differential distributions for exclusive scalar $f_0(1500)$ meson (glueball candidate) production for $p \bar p \to N_1 N_2 f_0$ (FAIR@GSI) and $p p \to p p f_0$ (J-PARC@Tokai). Both QCD diffractive, pion-pion meson exchange current (MEC) ... More

Charm-Anticharm Kinematical Correlations in Photon-Proton ScatteringAug 04 2004$c-\bar c$ correlations are calculated in the $k_t$-factorization approach. Different unintegrated gluon distributions (uGDF) from the literature are used. The results are compared with recent results of the FOCUS collaboration. The recently developed ... More

Central exclusive production of pion pairs in proton-(anti)proton collisionsSep 25 2015We present results for exclusive $p p \to p p \pi^+ \pi^-$ or $p \bar p \to p \bar p \pi^+ \pi^-$ processes at high energies. We discuss the role of new additional absorption corrections in the non-resonant Lebiedowicz-Szczurek model mediated by the pomeron ... More

Exclusive diffractive photon bremsstrahlung at high energiesJun 28 2013We discuss the $p p \to p p \gamma$ reaction at the LHC. We consider diffractive classical bremsstrahlung mechanisms including effects of non point-like nature of protons. In addition, we take into account (vector meson)-pomeron, photon-pion as well as ...

Inclusive production of J/$ψ$ and $ψ'$ mesons at the LHCSep 27 2016We discuss the prompt production of $J/\psi$ mesons in proton-proton collisions at the LHC within a NRQCD $k_{t}$-factorization approach using Kimber-Martin-Ryskin (KMR) unintegrated gluon distributions (UGDF). We include both direct color-singlet production ... More

Drell-Yan production at forward rapidities: a hybrid factorization approachOct 17 2016We discuss the Drell-Yan production of dileptons at high energies in the forward rapidity region of proton-proton collisions in a hybrid high-energy approach. This approach uses unintegrated gluon distributions in one proton and collinear quark/antiquark ... More

Subleading processes in production of $W^+ W^-$ pairs in proton-proton collisionsOct 15 2015We discuss new subleading processes for inclusive production of $W^+ W^-$ pairs. We focus mainly on photon-photon induced processes. We include elastic-elastic, elastic-inelastic, inelastic-elastic and inelastic-inelastic contributions. The inelastic ... More
