Abstract
A preliminary calculation of the total cross sections for the reactions $pn\to pn\pi^+\pi^-$, $pp\to pp\pi^+\pi^-$, $pp\to pp\pi^0\pi^0$,and $pp\to nn\pi^+\pi^+$ was carried out for the incident proton energy range $E_{p}\mathrel{\mathchoice {\vcenter{\offinterlineskip\halign{\hfil

This calculation was done in the framework of a model based on a version of the standard effective chiral Lagrangian, for which only three- and four-pion diagrams were taken into account together with diagrams containing two two-pion vertices. The invariant amplitudes were calculated to the threshold approximation. It was shown that for a reliable description of the reactions under consideration it is necessary to take into account the N*(1440) mechanism too. The final state interaction of the nucleons was also considered. Results of the calculation are compared with available experimental
data.
