Abstract

Inclusive cross sections for π0, Ks0, Λ0 and Λ0 production in 100, 200 and 360 GeV/c π-p interactions are presented and compared with data at other energies. Invariant cross sections for γ, Ks0, Λ0 and Λ0 production are presented in terms of Feynman x, the rapidity y, and transverse momentum squared, pT2. A comparison of the observed γ spectrum is made with the spectra computed assuming that the π0 momentum distribution is identical to that of the observed π+ orπ-.
