Exclusive glueball production in high-energy nucleus-nucleus collisions

M. V. T. Machado, M. L. L. da Silva
2011 Physical Review C  
The cross sections for the glueball candidates production in quasi-real photon-photon collisions and on central diffraction processes, i.e. double Pomeron exchange, in heavy ion interactions at RHIC and LHC are computed. The rates for these distinct production channels are compared and they may be a fruitful approach to the investigation of glueballs.
