Abstract

We discuss the prospects for probing Generalized Parton Distributions (GPDs) via exclusive production of a high{mass system (H = heavy quarkonium, di- photon, di-jet, Higgs boson) in diffractive pp scattering, pp → p+H+p. In such processes the interplay of hard and soft interactions gives rise to a diffraction pattern in the final{state proton transverse momenta, which is sensitive to the transverse spatial distribution of partons in the colliding protons. We comment on the plans for diffractive pp measurements at RHIC and LHC. Such studies could complement future measurements of GPDs in hard exclusive ep scattering (JLab, COMPASS, EIC).
