Abstract
On the basis of the improved Weizsaecker-Williams equivalent-photon spectrum of a fast charged particle, we calculate the radiative correction to this spectrum. The calculation involves the virtual-photon radiative correction, the soft- and hard-bremsstrahlung contributions, and the vacuum-polarization contribution. The results are used to calculate the radiative correction to two-photon production of neutral bosons and pair production of charged fermions and bosons. General features are that the elastic vertex radiative corrections to these processes are negative and large, up to 10--20%, while the total radiative corrections, including emission of an extra hard photon, are on the other hand positive and in general considerably smaller, of the order of 1%. The effect of electron tagging on the radiative corrections is briefly discussed.

Abstract The present knowledge of the structure of the photon is presented with emphasis on measurements of the photon structure obtained from deep inelastic electron–photon scattering at e + e − colliders. This review covers the leptonic and hadronic structure of quasi-real and also of highly virtual photons, based on measurements of structure functions and differential cross-sections. Future prospects of the investigation of the photon structure in view of the ongoing LEP2 programme and of a p...

Abstract We investigate the effects of photon radiation on deep-inelastic eγ scattering. Depending on the set of variables chosen, we find appreciable effects in the kinematic region accessible at LEP2. Convenient analytic results for O ( α ) corrected differential cross sections are presented.

Pioneering observations on the luminescent phenomena generated in evacuated tubes belong to the history of spectroscopy and date as far back as the mid-1800s.(1,2) Within this field of research, the first description of a hollow cathode discharge (HCD) published in the scientific literature can be found in the early years of this century, when a German physicist, Friedrich Paschen, reported on the quite unique features of this radiation source.(3) At the time he was mainly engaged in the investi...

The process γγ→π+π− was measured using the detector MD-1 at VEPP-4. The two-photon reactionse+e−, μ+ μ− and π+ π− pair production were separated using scintillation counters, Cherenkov counters and shower-range chambers. A radiation widthГγγ(f2(1270))=3.1±0.35±0.35 keV was obtained.

All presently available experimental data on deuteron photodisintegration below 40 MeV (i.e., total and differential cross sections, photon asymmetry and neutron polarization) are collected and carefully compared with the present status of the conventional theory (i.e., in the framework of mesontheoretical or semi-phenomenologicalN-N potentials including subnuclear degrees of freedom and relativistic corrections). No significant evidence for a failure of the conventional theory is found within t...

Results of a measurement of the two-photon widths of thea 2, η′, η with the detector MD-1 at thee + e − collider VEPP-4 are presented. The specific feature of this experiment is tagging of at least one scattered electron. The following results have been obtained $$\begin{gathered} \Gamma _{\gamma \gamma } (a_2 ) = 1.26 \pm 0.26 \pm 0.18 keV, \hfill \\ \Gamma _{\gamma \gamma } (\eta ') = 4.6 \pm 1.1 \pm 0.6 keV, \hfill \\ \Gamma _{\gamma \gamma } (\eta ) = 0.51 \pm 0.12 \pm 0.05 keV. \hfill \\ \e...

Some of the most important physics processes which can be studied at high-energy electron-proton colliders such as HERA involve the hard scattering of quasi-real photons emitted from the incoming electron. Several of these processes have been calculated to next-to-leading order in QCD perturbation theory and can therefore, at least in principle, be used for precision standard model tests. A common feature of such analyses is the use of the equivalent photon approximation, which simplifies the ca...
