Title: Low p/sub T/ inclusive production in hadron-nucleus collisions. [100 GeV/c]

Abstract

New experimental results on the A dependence of inclusive hadron scattering are described with emphasis on the projectile fragmentation region. The experiment measured h + A ..-->.. h' + x, where h was ..pi../sup +/, K/sup +/, or p; h' was ..pi../sup + -/, K/sup + -/, or p; and A, the nuclear target, was C, Al, Cu, Ag, or Pb. The experimental apparatus consisted of the Fermilab M6E beam line and the Single Arm Spectrometer Facility. An incident beam of 100 GeV/c was used; the production of fast h' was measured over the transverse momentum range from 0.18 to 0.5. Invariant cross sections are presented and fitted to a power law function in A. For all channels, increasing attenuation as a function of A is seen. Fitted values of fragmentation functions of spectator and wounded quarks are shown for pion-induced reactions. 8 figures. (RWR)
