Rapidity gaps and hard diffraction at the Tevatron

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Preliminary results on jet production with rapidity gaps in p{anti p} collisions are presented for both D0 and CDF. An excess of events with a forward rapidity gap is observed at both {radical}s=1800 GeV and 630 GeV, consistent with a hard single diffractive process. The first evidence for diffractive W production is presented. A class of events with two forward gaps and central dijets is observed at {radical}s=1800 GeV, a topology that is consistent with hard double pomeron exchange. Kinematic properties of events containing rapidity gaps are measured.
