Abstract: We use an almost model-independent analytical parameterization for $pp$ and$\bar{p}p$ elastic scattering data to analyze the eikonal, profile, andinelastic overlap functions in the impact parameter space. Error propagation inthe fit parameters allows estimations of uncertainty regions, improving thegeometrical description of the hadron-hadron interaction. Several predictionsare shown and, in particular, the prediction for $pp$ inelastic overlapfunction at $\sqrt{s}=14$ TeV shows the saturation of the Froissart-Martinbound at LHC energies.
