Abstract

Equations for Glauber screening in high-energy reactions (p, π, γ) + nucleus → p, π, K, ... + X with backward p, π, K are derived by the methods of reggeon calculus. p and π yields off D, 4He, 6Li are calculated without any adjusted parameters. The possibility to use the heavy nucleus as an effective accelerator in the TeV energy range is estimated.
