Production of {pi}{sup {plus_minus}}, K{sup {plus_minus}}, p, K{sup 0}{sub s}, {Lambda}{sup 0}, K{sup *0} and {phi} in Hadronic Z{sup 0} Decays

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Production rates and momentum distributions have been measured for {pi}{sup {+-}}, K{sup {+-}}, p, K{sup 0}{sub s}, {Lambda}{sup 0}, K{sup *0} and {phi} in 150,000 hadronic Z{sup 0} decays recorded by the SLD detector at the SLD collider at SLAC. The analysis uses the SLD Cerenkov Ring Imaging Detector (CRID) for clean and efficient identification of charged tracks and significant background reduction. In addition, K{sup *0} production has been studied in quark and anti-quark jet samples, which were identified by their electroweak forward backward asymmetries using the SLD high electron beam polarization. A difference between the two samples is observed ... continued below

In addition, K{sup *0} production has been studied in quark and anti-quark jet samples, which were identified by their electroweak forward backward asymmetries using the SLD high electron beam polarization. A difference between the two samples is observed in the K{sup *0} rate at high momentum, consistent with leading particle and strangeness suppression hypotheses.
