Author(s) from Durham


We argue that the so-called maximal Odderon contribution breaks the ‘black disk’ behaviorof the asymp-totic amplitude, since the cross section of the events with Large Rapidity Gaps grows faster than the total cross section. That is the ‘maximal Odderon’ is not consistent with unitarity.
