## Abstract

The high-energy behavior of the reaction$$\bar PP \to \bar PP$$ atPL=8 GeV/c andPL=16 GeV/c is studied in the context of O(3,1) symmetry. In view of the many exchanged particles, approximate equivalence relations ins-channel amplitudes are used which cut down the unknown parameters to a manageable set of adjustable constants. Our analysis has essentially explained the characteristic features of this reaction, which are (i) the ending of the forward peak at |t| ≃ 0.6 (GeV/c)2; (ii) developing of a shoulder at larger |t|'s; and (iii) decreasing of the differential cross section at the shoulder for 16 GeV/c at a slower rate than 8 GeV/c.
