Description

A search for the Technicolor processes p{bar p} {yields} {rho}{sub T}{sup {+-}} {yields} W{sup {+-}}{pi}{sub T}{sup 0} {yields} {mu}{nu}b{bar b} and p{bar p} {yields} {rho}{sub T}{sup 0} {yields} W{sup {+-}}{pi}{sub T}{sup {+-}} {yields} {mu}{nu}b{bar c} is conducted at the D0 detector. Selection requirements are individually optimized for each of twenty mass hypotheses by means of a random grid search. No excess is seen in a 291 pb{sup -1} data set and 95% confidence level upper limits are set on the Technicolor production cross section. The mass combinations M{sub {rho}} = 195 GeV/c{sup 2}, M{sub {pi}} = 100 GeV/c{sup 2} and ... continued below
