The ''standard'' luminosity of 2 x 10/sup 32/ is taken as a goal for a device that measures charged particle momenta over a wide solid angle. It appears that a projection chamber is capable of operation in this mode providing care is taken to optimize the geometry with this high flux in mind. Some calculations have indicated that optimism is required but in no direction have the demands on the apparatus appeared to be well beyond those attainable. In addition dE/dx measurements yielding particle identification over the median momentum range, about 2 to 30 GeV/c, are also feasible.

We present measurements of the relative production cross-sections of anti p, anti ..lambda.., anti ..xi.., and anti ..cap omega.. at y approx. 0 for 1 less than or equal to p/sub T/ less than or equal to 2 GeV/c in pp collisions at ..sqrt..s = 63 GeV. The results are compared with previous measurements of antibaryon production in hadronic and e/sup +/e/sup -/ collisions.

We present a preliminary report on a study of the exclusive reaction pp ..-->.. pph/sup +/h/sup -/ (h = ..pi..,K,p) at ..sqrt..s = 63 GeV and ..sqrt..s = 45 GeV, with h/sup +/ and h/sup -/ in the central region. This reaction has been suggested as a method of searching for gluonium states. The mass distributions in the ..pi../sup +/..pi../sup -/ system appear to be identical at the two values of ..sqrt..s. They show a rapid order of magnitude decrease in cross-section at 1000 MeV/c/sup 2/ and 1500 MeV/c/sup 2/. Further structure is observed above 2000 MeV/c/sup 2/.

The properties of jets in high-E/sub tau/ events produced in pp collisions at ..sqrt..s = 63 GeV have been studied at the CERN Intersecting Storage Rings. The fragmentation of the jets is found to be similar to that of jets produced in e/sup +/e/sup -/ annihilation. The jets are wider than calculated from a constituent scattering model with no hard bremsstrahlung component. The charge correlations of positive and negative particles show differences consistent with expectation from valence-quark scattering. 11 references.
