In this report, we analyze the exclusive meson production in leptonhadron and hadron processes to study Generalized Parton Distributions (GPDs). It is shown that in both reactions, the photoproduction mechanism of vector meson (VM) production predominates. We estimate the VM production cross section and spin observables.
The possibility to study the exclusive VM production at NICA was analyzed. One can investigate different observables in ρ, ω and J/ψ productions to study quark and gluon GPDs. The other important process is the exclusive Drell-Yan (D-Y) production in the proton-proton reaction determined by two GPDs contributions. This reaction gives an important test of the GPD model and hopefully can be studied at NICA energies.
