Inclusive diffraction γ*p Xp

Q2 = virtuality of photon =

t = (4-momentum exchanged at p vertex)2

typically: |t|<1 GeV2

W = invariant mass of photon-proton system

MX = invariant mass of photon-Pomeron system

xIP = fraction of proton’s momentum

taken by Pomeron

ß = Bjorken’s variable for the Pomeron

Diffractive DIS in the Breit frame

(Breit frame)

- DIS of a pointlike virtual photon off the exchanged object
- PDFs

HARD SCATTERING FACTORISATION

fi/pD(z,Q2,xIP,t): probability to find in a proton, with a probe of resolution

Q2, parton i with momentum fraction z, under the condition that the proton remains intact and emerges with small energy loss, xIP, and momentum transfer,t

Diffractive Deep Inelastic Scattering probes the diffractive PDFs of

the proton relevant when the vacuum quantum numbers are exchanged

- Lifetime of dipoles very long due to large γ boost (E γ ~ W2 ~ 1/x 50TeV ! )it is thedipole that interactswith theproton !

- Transverse size of dipoles proportional to can be so small
- that the strong interaction with proton can be treatedperturbatively !

Diffractive DIS in the colour dipole picture

We can learn more about the structure of the proton by studying DDIS in a frame in which the virtual photon is faster than the proton

(γ* much faster than p)

- BEKW model : at medium β; at small β
- saturation model : (colour transparency)
- as Q2 0, growth tamed by saturating
