Multiparticle rapidity clustering in 200 GeV/c π- p interactions


Journal Article

A study of multiparticle rapidity clustering is made using a generalized rapidity-gap method. The data for events with ≥6 charged particles are compared to what would be expected from uncorrelated particle production. We find clear evidence for cluster production. The data are consistent with ∼ 20% of all charged particles being produced in clusters of two charged particles; clusters of higher multiplicity are not required. © 1978.
