## Description of LHC data in a soft interaction model    [PDF]

E. Gotsman, E. Levin, U. Maor

We show in this paper that we have found a set of parameters in our model for the soft interactions at high energy, that successfully describes all high energy experimental data, including the LHC data. This model is based on a single Pomeron with large intercept $\Delta_\pom = 0.23$ and slope $\alpha'_\pom = 0$, that describes both long and short distance processes. It also provides a natural matching with perturbative QCD. All features of our model are similar to the expectations of N=4 SYM, which at present is the only theory that is able to treat srong interactions on a theoretical basis.
