Title: Parton Energy Loss Limits and Shadowing in Drell-Yan Dimuon Production

Abstract

A precise measurement of the ratios of the Drell-Yan cross section per nucleon for an 800 GeV/{ital c} proton beam incident on Be, Fe, and W targets is reported. The behavior of the Drell-Yan ratios at small target-parton momentum fraction is well described by an existing fit to the shadowing observed in deep-inelastic scattering. The cross-section ratios as a function of the incident-parton momentum fraction set tight limits on the energy loss of quarks passing through a cold nucleus. {copyright} {ital 1999} {ital The American Physical Society}
