Title: Experimental studies of elementary particle interactions at high energies. Summary technical progress report

This is a report of the research activities of the Experimental High Energy Physics group of The Rockefeller University. As this is an annual progress report, the emphasis is on last year`s research activities. However, since it is the last of a series of 5 such reports to be submitted to the DOE under the present 5 year contract, an effort has been made to provide comprehensive coverage of the research activities of the group throughout the contract period. In the past 5 years, the research program encompassed three major areas: the UA-6 experiment at CERN, the CDF experiment at Fermilab, and several SSC projects. The UA-6 experiment studies direct-{gamma} and J/{Psi} production in pp and {bar p}p interactions at {radical}s = 22.5 GeV.4. In the CDFF experiment the authors have concentrated in the area of small angle physics, where the objective has been to measure the elastic, diffractive and total cross sections, and to provide an absolute calibration of the machine luminosity. The SSC research projects related to two experiments: The Solenoidal Detector Collaboration and the ``low p{sub T} physics`` experiment.
