Diffractive Physics at the LHC
Keywords:LHC, AFP, ALFA, TOTEM, pomeron, diffraction, exclusive processes, beyond standard model
Diffractive processes possible to be measured at the LHC are listed and briefly discussed. This includes soft (elastic scattering, exclusive meson pair production, diffractive bremsstrahlung) and hard (single and double Pomeron exchange jets, y +jet, W/Z, jet-gap-jet, exclusive jets) processes as well as Beyond Standard Model phenomena (anomalous gauge couplings, magnetic monopoles).
