Inclusive production cross sections have been measured for the processes p+A0+X (A=Be, Cu, Pb) and for p+Be»0+X. Data were taken at angles of 0, 2, 3.5, 7.3, and 9.8 mrad between the incident 400-GeV proton beam and the outgoing hyperon beam. Production cross sections for and » production were measured at the same time. The A dependence of the 0 cross sections is discussed, along with interpretations in terms of various models.
