Abstract:Phenomenological studies are made of two multiperipheral models. The first part, of the thesis is an application of the multi Regge model to the process n- p -> TT+ pi-. pi"" p at .5 GeV Ic. A good description of the data is obtained, including fits to n'llll'!erous multi-particle distributions. We find that predicted dif£ractive slopes are systematically high. Comments on duality and on the Trelman-Yang angle distribution, as they apply to this model, are made. The second part of the thesis is an application of the multiperipheral model to inelastic electron-proton scattering. The form factor vW2 for this process is numerically evaluated in a multiperipheral model with scalar couplings, and in a generalization of this model which allows form factors to accompany. the pion exchange. It is found that although the models are theoretically seale invariant in the sense that "W2 approaches a finite limit as (l-7> -00, this limit is ,approached very slowly; for values of Iq21 .tV 1-7 (GeV/c)2. exprimentally attainable at sac, the models have not reached their scale invariant limits.
