Cross Section Large Hadron Collider

  1. Oct 28, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    b) The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a 14 TeV proton-proton collider, will produce about a million Z0 per year. Explain why the cross section of such a process can be approximately written as:
    [tex]d\sigma / d\Omega = F_{q/p}(X_{1})F_{q'/p}(X_{2})d\sigma '(qq' \rightarrow Z)/d\Omega[/tex]
    [tex]d\sigma '(qq' \rightarrow Z)/d\Omega[/tex] is the point like cross section.

    2. Relevant equations
    None given except as above...

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I can't really figure this one out at all... any points in the right direction would be greatly appreciated! Thankyou!
