# How well can we predict the total cross section at the LHC - High Energy Physics - Phenomenology

Abstract: Independently of any theory, the possibility that the large value of theTevatron cross section claimed by CDF is correct suggests that the total crosssection at the LHC may be large. Because of the experimental and theoreticaluncertainities, the best prediction is $125\pm 35$ mb.
