ρ0 production in π-p interactions at 100, 200, and 360 GeV/c

Published

Journal Article

Inclusive and semi-inclusive cross sections for gp0 production in 100, 200, and 360 GeV/c π-p interactions are presented. Differential cross sections for ρ0 production as functions of c.m. rapidity and transverse momentum are compared with the corresponding differential cross sections for pion production. Effects of various methods of estimating background on the values obtained for ρ0 production cross sections are discussed. About 10% of the final-state charged pions appear to come from ρ0 decay. Thus, while ρ0 production and decay is a significant source of final-state pions, other sources must contribute the majority of the produced pions. © 1979 The American Physical Society.
