Title: Spin observables in proton-deuteron scattering and T-invariance test

The total cross section for the interaction of transversely polarized protons p{sub p}{sup y} and deuterons that have a tensor polarization P{sub x}{sup z} provides a null-test signal of T-invariance violation under the condition of P invariance. The relevant experiment is planned by the PAX Collaboration at the COSY accelerator with protons accelerated to the energy of 135 MeV. A modified Glauber theory is used here to calculate the differential spin observables A{sub y}, C{sub y,y}, C{sub xz,y}, C{sub z,x}, and C{sub x,z} and the differential and total cross sections for proton-deuteron scattering in the case of T-even P-even proton-nucleon interactions. This makes it possible to estimate background conditions of the planned experiment.
