    • Abstract


      Elastic scattering of 800 MeV/c pions by12C has been studied in the diffraction model with a view to determine pion optical potential by the method of inversion. Finding an earlier diffraction model analysis to be deficient in some respects, we propose a Glauber model based parametrization for the elasticS-matrix and show that it provides an exceedingly good fit to the pion-carbon data. The proposed elasticS-matrix gives a closed expression for the pion-12C optical potential by the method of inversion in the high energy approximation.
