Multiparticle production in pi- p collisions at 100 GeV

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The authors propose an experiment to examine in some detail the multiple production of pions in {pi}-p collisions at 100 GeV. In the experiment they identify and measure the proton recoiling from the collision and then measure the multiplicity and the momentum distribution of the accompanying mesonic shower. They propose to measure: (1) the elastic {pi}p cross-section over a wide range of momentum transfer 0.1 {le} -t {le} 15 GeV{sup 2} or until the cross-section d{sigma}/dt drops below 10{sup -33} cm{sup 2}/GeV{sup 2}/c{sup 2}; (2) using proton recoil measurements above, the mesonic missing mass cross-sections over a wide range of ... continued below
