We consider the role of the two-photon corrections to the small angle μp and ep elastic scattering and the expected σ(μ−p)/σ(μ+p) ratio.

On the Transfer of Polarization from the Initial to the Final Proton in the Elastic Process ep⃗ →ep⃗ : https://arxiv.org/abs/2107.08503
The Q2 dependence of the ratio of the cross sections with and without spin flip, as well as the polarization asymmetry in the process ep⃗ →ep⃗ has been numerically analyzed using the results of JLab polarization experiments on the measurements of the ratio of the Sachs form factors in the e⃗ p→ep⃗ process. The calculations have been made for the case where the initial (at rest) and final protons are fully polarized and have a common spin quantization axis, which coincides with the direction of motion of the final proton. The longitudinal polarization transfer to the proton has been calculated in the case of the partially polarized initial proton for a kinematics used in the experiment reported in [A. Liyanage et al. (SANE Collaboration), Phys. Rev. C 101, 035206 (2020)], where the double spin asymmetry was measured in the e⃗ p⃗ →ep process. A noticeable sensitivity of the polarization transfer to the proton to the form of the Q2 dependence of the ratio μpGE/GM has been found. This sensitivity may be used to conduct a new independent experiment to measure this dependence in the ep⃗ →ep⃗ process. A criterion to assess the reliability of measurements of the ratio of Sachs form factors using the Rosenbluth technique has been proposed and used to analyze the results of two experiments.
