Abstract

In terms of perturbative QCD we calculate the basic features of high-mass (MX) diffractive dissociation of hadrons at large momentum transfer t. We find that the distribution over 1-x=MX2/s should change from 1/(1-x) at small t to &/ ln3[1/(1-x)] at large t [where 0=S(t)12 ln(2)/], and that the gluon distribution in the Pomeron should flatten with increasing -t-.
