Abstract

The reaction cross section σRpA(E) for proton-nucleus collisions varies with energy as the total cross section σtpN(E) does for proton-nucleon scattering in the energy regime 100 MeV ≤ E ≤400 GeV. We propose several empirical relations, and test them by a χ2 analysis of various data. Within the framework of Glauber theory, the parameters in the relations can be linked to the cross section for a single inelastic collision.
