  abstract     = {{Collisions in a high-luminosity collider result in a continuous burn-off of the circulating beams that is the dominant effect that reduces the instantaneous luminosity over time. In order to obtain a good estimate of the luminosity evolution, it is imperative to have an accurate understanding of the burn-off. Typically, this is calculated based on the inelastic cross-section, as it provides a direct estimate of the number of protons that participate in inelastic collisions, and are hence removed. Likewise, protons that participate in elastic collisions will remain in the machine acceptance, still contributing to luminosity. In between these two regimes lie diffractive collisions, for which the protons have a certain probability to remain in the machine acceptance. Recent developments of the SixTrack code allow it to interface with Pythia, thus allowing for more precise simulations to obtain a better estimate of the diffractive part of the cross-section. In this paper, we will mainly concentrate on slowly-drifting protons that are close to the acceptance limit, resulting from single-diffractive scattering.}},
