We present a study of the production of K_s^0 and Lambda^0 in inelastic pbar-p collisions at sqrt(s)= 1800 and 630 GeV using data collected by the CDF experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron. Analyses of K_s^0 and Lambda^0 multiplicity and transverse momentum distributions, as well as of the dependencies of the average number and <p_T> of K_s^0 and Lambda^0 on charged particle multiplicity are reported. Systematic comparisons are performed for the full sample of inelastic collisions, and for the low and high momentum transfer subsamples, at the two energies. The p_T distributions extend above 8 GeV/c, showing a <p_T> higher than previous measurements. The dependence of the mean K_s^0(Lambda^0) p_T on the charged particle multiplicity for the three samples shows a behavior analogous to that of charged primary tracks.

The inclusive production ofKs0, Λ and\(\bar \Lambda \) particles is investigated in 70 GeV/c\(\bar pp\) interactions in an experiment performed at CERN using BEBC equipped with a TST. Differential cross-sections are studied and compared with corresponding data at surrounding energies. Differences withpp data obtained at the same energy allow an estimate of theKs0, production cross-section in annihilation processes. Evidence is also given for central\(\Lambda \bar \Lambda \) production.
A supersymmetric extension of the interacting boson model (IBM) is constructed to describe high-spin anomalies in both even- and odd-mass spectra of the Hg, Pt region (190 ⩽ A ⩽ 200). Supergroup chains such as U ( 6 2j + 1 ) ⊃ Osp ( 6 2j + 1 ) ⊃ O (6) × Sp ( 6 2j + 1 )… U ( 6 2j + 1 ) ⊃ U ( 5 2j + 1 ) ⊃ Osp ( 5 2j + 1 )… incorporate a single j -shell fermion in addition to the usual “s” and “d” bosons ( L = 0 and L = 2). The orthosympletic supergroup reflects the strong pairing force in the subspace of the fermion intruder level. The model agrees favourably with experiment and microscopic calculation.
ANNIHILATION AND NON-ANNIHILATION TOPOLOGICAL CROSS SECTIONS.
The data obtained in an exposure of BEBC to an r.f. separated beam of antiprotons at 12 GeV/c are used to derive exclusive cross sections for reactions having one or more neutral strange particles in the final state. Particular attention is given to the estimation of the background. An upper limit of the cross section for the inclusive production of the charmed mesonD* is also given.
