Lepton Pair Production in Hadronic Collisions by Two Photon Exchange in Weizsäcker-Williams Approximation.
I. Satsunkevich, Dz. Shoukavy and A. Khilkevich

We calculate the lepton pair production in hadron collisions a rather exactly. Then we compare numerical results with Tevatron experimental data and receive satisfactory agreement. This means the equivalent photon approximation or the Weizsäcker-Williams method is applicable in hadron collisions. Our final formula for elastic part of photon density distribution can be used for the description of future elastic events at the Large Hadron Collider.
Key words: two-photon production, Weizsäcker-Williams approximation, cross section
