Publications, 23 July 2019
We are glad to bring to your attention a new preprint «Cumulative Proton Production in π– + C Interactions at 40 GeV/ c and the Uncertainty Principle» E1-2019-21 issued by the JINR Publishing Department. The authors are Baatar Ts. et al.
We study the cumulative proton production in π– + C interactions at 40 GeV/c. Cumulative protons, in comparison with the noncumulative ones, are produced at large values of the variable nc (nc > 1.0) and in this region the energy of cumulative protons also increases. The experimental values of the cumulative proton energies are compared with the estimations obtained by the formula of the uncertainty principle. It has been shown that the energy of cumulative protons obtained by using the formula of the uncertainty principle is in agreement with the experimental results to an accuracy of less than ∼ 10.
