    Sammanfattning

    The status of the TOTEM experiment is described as well as the prospects
    for the measurements in the early LHC runs. The primary goal of
    TOTEM is the measurement of the total p-p cross section, using a
    method independent of the luminosity. A final accuracy of 1% is ex-
    pected with dedicated β∗ = 1540 m runs, while at the beginning a
    5% resolution is achievable with a β∗ = 90 m optics. Accordingly
    to the running scenarios TOTEM will be able to measure the elastic
    scattering in a wide range of t and to study the cross-sections and the
    topologies of diffractive events. In a later stage, physics studies will
    be extended to low-x and forward physics collaborating with CMS as
    a whole experimental apparatus.
