Pomwig: Herwig for diffractive interactions



We have modified the Herwig event generator to incorporate diffractive interactions. All standard Herwig hard subprocesses are available.

Title of program: POMWIG 1.1
Catalogue Id: ADPP_v1_0

Nature of problem
The nature of the pomeron, a strongly interacting colorless exchange, has been studied widely in both proton-proton and electron-proton collisions. Factorizable models, in which the proton 'emits' a pomeron which undergoes a hard interaction with the other beam particle, have met with considerable success in electron-proton collisions [2], although their applicability in proton-proton collisions is as yet uncertain. In understanding the nature of diffraction experimentally, it is crucial to have ...
