Title: Measurement of the forward-backward asymmetry of $$\Lambda$$ and $$\bar{\Lambda}$$ production in $$p \bar{p}$$ collisions

Abstract

Here, we study $$\Lambda$$ and $$\bar{\Lambda}$$ production asymmetries in $$p \bar{p} \rightarrow \Lambda (\bar{\Lambda}) X$$, $$p \bar{p} \rightarrow J/\psi \Lambda (\bar{\Lambda}) X$$, and $$p \bar{p} \rightarrow \mu^\pm \Lambda (\bar{\Lambda}) X$$ events recorded by the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider at $$\sqrt{s} = 1.96$$ TeV. We find an excess of $$\Lambda$$'s ($$\bar{\Lambda}$$'s) produced in the proton (antiproton) direction. This forward-backward asymmetry is measured as a function of rapidity. We confirm that the $$\bar{\Lambda}/\Lambda$$ production ratio, measured by several experiments with various targets and a wide range of energies, is a universal function of "rapidity loss", i.e., the rapidity difference of the beam proton and the lambda.
