Search for quark-lepton compositeness using the Drell-Yan process at D-Zero

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We present preliminary results on the search for quark-lepton compositeness using the Drell-Yan process in p{anti p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.8 TeV. If quarks and leptons were composite with common substructure, the dielectron mass spectrum would show an excess in the high mass region relative to the Standard model. We observe no such excess. We set a 95% confidence level lower limit on the compositness scale using a contact interaction model.
