Summary
In this paper we propose a theoretical model for high-energy interaction, the basic idea of which is that the high-energy processes are reducible to low energy ones, through a peripheral mechanism. The asymptotic properties of this model are studied by means of a linear homogeneous integral equation, whose kernel depends on the low-energy amplitudes. It is shown that many general predictions can be derived which are independent of the detailed form of the low-energy input. The results refer
both to high energy elastic scattering and multiple production. For the inelastic processes we obtained simple general predictions for measurable quantities such as multiplicities, inelasticity, and spectra of secondaries. For the elastic scattering we find the characteristic Regge pole behaviour for all scattering amplitudes. The relation between the bound state problem and diffraction can therefore be understood in a relativistic model which contains in itself both phenomena. We finally
discuss the possible correction of the model by using approximately the unitarity condition and we find indications of the possible existence of continuous power distribution, or equivalently of cuts in the complex angular momentum variable.
