Inclusive production of 0 hyperons by 300-GeV protons has been measured at fixed production angles in the laboratory between 0 and 9 mrad and laboratory momenta from 65 to 300 GeV/c. Three different solid targets were used: beryllium, copper, and lead. The A dependence of the data is suggestive of a collision model in which the hadron loses energy and gains transverse momentum as it leaves the nucleus. The experimental results are compared to such a model, and the implications are discussed.
