Scaling Behavior in Multiperipheral Dynamics

We demonstrate the scaling of the single-particle momentum distribution as a general property of all the multiperipheral models which have been proposed. We also show that in these models, pionization is approached as a smooth limit from scaling. The proof is based only on the most general multiperipheral assumption and on Pomeranchuk-pole dominance at high energies. Thus the experimental observation of scaling is required for the validity of any multiperipheral model. © 1971 The American Physical Society.
