The differential cross section and all components of the analyzing powers Ay, Axx, Ayy and Axz have been measured in dp elastic scattering at 56 MeV. This is the first measurement of Axz in the cyclotron energy region. Axz has been measured with the beam polarized in the horizontal plane using the polarization tagging method. Faddeev calculations have been performed for four cases of the NN interaction. The Coulomb correction gave smaller effects at the present energy than at lower energies. Three of them reproduce the experimental data well. The agreement between the calculations and data for Axz was better than that reported at lower energy. The deuteron asymptotic D- to S-state ratio has been obtained and is consistent within the limits of uncertainty with previously obtained values.
