  • The STAR experiment at RHIC is a large acceptance detector. The electromagnetic calorimeter (EMC) will provide a sensitive trigger to study high p{sub t} jets and hard photons in AuAu, pp, and pAu collisions. The capability for the EMC to trigger on jets and direct photons was studied for trigger level 0. Trigger efficiencies and expected process rates were obtained for pp reactions. Results from pp interactions will be essential to the interpretation of AuAu results as well as for the spin physics program. These studies were performed with the standard STAR software chain which includes GEANT and EMC simulations.more » The HIJING event generator was used to provide input for the simulations.« less
  • The authors present recent results on high p{sub T} jets and photon production in {bar p}p collisions at a center of mass energy of 1.96 TeV. The measurements were performed by the CDF and D0 collaborations using between 150 and 300 pb{sup -1} of data taken during Run II at the Tevatron.
  • Estimates are made of the cross section for producing high momentum particles and jets at Isabelle using two different models one that fits the data but has no theoretical basis, and one based on theory but which does not fit the data. The purpose of these estimates is to give a range of expectations for Isabelle, and not to suggest tests of these models. In both models it is assumed the proton is made up of quark-partons with structure functions determined in large part from deep inelastic lepton-proton scattering. 5 references. (JFP)
  • We suggest a procedure, based on the kinematics of qg-scattering in high-p/sub T/ events, whereby it is possible to obtain enriched samples of quark and gluon jets. At SppS energies this could be used to indicate whether quark and gluon jet fragmentation agree or not. At higher energies the application would rather be to study the differences in the parton cascades, i.e. jet substructure.
  • This report is a compilation of papers reflecting current trends in non-accelerator particle physics, corresponding to talks that its author was invited to present at the Workshop on Tibet Cosmic Ray Experiment and Related Physics Topics held in Beijing, China, April 4--13, 1995. The papers are entitled `Neutrino Mass and Oscillation`, `High Energy Neutrino Astrophysics`, `Detection of Dark Matter`, `Search for Strange Quark Matter`, and `Magnetic Monopole Searches`. The report is introduced by a survey of the field and a brief description of each of the author`s papers.
