Title: Proceedings of the Drell Yan workshop

Abstract

Their reasons may differ but theorists and experimenters agree that massive lepton pairs produced in hadronic collisions are an incisive probe of strong interaction dynamics. Within the past decade experiments revealed two new quark flavors, verified the approximate dimensional scaling predicted by the parton model, and indicated in many other ways that Drell and Yan's quark-antiquark annihilation mechanism is at least qualitatively the right paradigm. Quantum chromodynamics and its phenomenological implications reaffirm the special role of lepton pair production as perhaps the best hadronic laboratory for testing many concepts and computations. The approximately linear growth with energy of the average transverse momentum is heralded as evidence for an underlying field theory of the strong interactions. Important issues of the day include the status of the proofs of factorization in the parton model, higher-order terms in the perturbative QCD expansion, the discrepancy between measured and predicted yields (K factor), high-twist terms, soft gluon effects, and nuclear A dependence effects. Separate entries were prepared for the data base for the 18 papers presented. (WHK)
