Inclusive properties of D mesons produced in 360 GeV π- p interactions

Published

Journal Article

The inclusive cross sections for forward D meson production at s=26 GeV in π-p interactions have been measured to be: σ(π-p→D0/D0+X)x F>0 = (10.1±2.2)μb, σ(π-p→D±+X)xF>0 = (5.7±1.6)μb. The distribution in xF for all D and for xF>0 has the form dσ/dxF=107-37+39(1-xF) 7.5-1.7+2.5+5.4-3.8+6.0 (1-xF)0.7-0.71.0μ b, with evidence for leading D production. The pT2 distribution is exponential with slope parameter [-1.18-0.16+0.18](GeV/ c)-2. The data are compared with predictions from first-order quark/gluon fusion calculations. © 1985.
