Using data from Fermilab fixed-target experiment E769, we have measured particle-antiparticle production asymmetries for Lambda0 hyperons in 250 GeV/c pi+-, K+- and p -- nucleon interactions. The asymmetries are measured as functions of Feynman-x (x_F) and p_t^2 over the ranges -0.12<=x_F<=0.12 and 0<=p_t^2<=3 (GeV/c)^2 (for positive beam) and -0.12<=x_F<=0.4 and 0<=p_t^2<=10 (GeV/c)^2 (for negative beam). We find substantial asymmetries, even at x_F around zero. We also observe leading-particle-type asymmetries. These latter effects are qualitatively as expected from valence-quark content of the target and variety of projectiles studied.

Forward cross-sections for production of D+, D0, D(s), D*+ and Lambda(c) in 250-GeV pi+-, K+-, and p - nucleon interactions

We measure forward cross sections for production of D+, D0, Ds, D*+, and Λc in collisions of π±, K±, and p on a nuclear target. Production induced by different beam particles is found to be the same within statistics. Strange and baryonic final states are seen to contribute appreciably to the total charm cross section, which our measurements indicate is larger than but consistent with QCD predictions. The energy dependence mapped out by these and previous measurements is consistent with theory. Leading-particle asymmetry measurements for K and p-induced charm production are also presented.

Feynman x and transverse momentum dependence of D meson production in 250-GeV pi, K and p - nucleon interactions

We measure the differential cross sections with respect to Feynman x ( xF) and transverse momentum ( pT) for π, K, and p-induced charm meson production using fully reconstructed D+, D0, and Ds decays. The shapes of these cross sections are compared to the theoretical predictions for charm quark production of next-to-leading order perturbative QCD using modern parametrizations of the pion and nucleon parton distributions. We observe the differences expected in production induced by projectiles with different gluon distributions, harder distributions being indicated for mesons than for protons.

Enhanced leading production of D+- and D*+- in 250-GeV pi+- - nucleon interactions

A leading charm meson is one with longitudinal momentum fraction, xF>0, whose light quark (or antiquark) is of the same type as one of the quarks in the beam particles. We report on the production asymmetry, A=[σ(leading-σ(nonleading)]/[σ(leading)+σ(nonleading)] as a function of xF. The data consist of 1500 fully reconstructed D± and D*± decays in Fermilab experiment E 769. We find a significant asymmetry for the production of charm quarks is not expected in perturbative quantum chromodynamics.

D*+- production in 250-GeV pi+- N interactions

We report results from Fermilab experiment E769 on the differential cross sections of D*± charm vector mesons with respect to Feynman-x (xF) and transverse momentum (PT), and on the atomic mass dependence of the production. The D* mesons were produced by a 250 GeV π beam on a target of Be, Al, Cu, and W foils. The dσdxF distribution is fit by the form ((1−xF)n) with n=3.5±0.3±0.1, the dσdPT2 distribution by exp(−b×PT2) with b=0.70±0.07±0.04 GeV−2, and the cross section A dependence by Aα with α=1.00±0.07±0.02. These results are compared to the equivalent parameters for the production of pseudoscalar D0 and D± charm mesons.
