Inclusive and exclusive processes with leading neutron in ep collisions


The inclusive and exclusive processes associated with a leading neutron in ep collisions at high energies are described using the color dipole formalism. We demonstrate that the available experimental HERA data on $x_{L}$ (Feynman momentum) distribution of leading neutrons can be very well described taking into account the nonlinear(saturation) effects in the QCD dynamics. Moreover, we present our estimate for the exclusive cross sections which can be studied at HERA and in future electron-proton colliders.
