FIT FOR FORWARD CROSS SECTION AND SLOPE.
Differential cross-section and polarization measurements for the reaction π − p → K 0 Σ 0 are presented from 1395 to 2375 MeV/ c incident beam momentum. The polarization data from an earlier experiment, from thershold to 1334 MeV/ c , have been re-analysed by an improved method leading to a substantial reduction in the errors.

INTERCEPT AND SLOPE FROM FIT TO D(SIG)/DT (PRESUMABLY FOR -TP < ABOUT 0.4 GEV**2).
We present differential and total cross sections for two reactions: π−p→K0Λ and π−p→K0Σ0. The incident pion momenta were 8, 10.7, and 15.7 GeVc. The results are based on an analysis of approximately 22 600 events of the two reactions where the π+ and π− from the decay of the KS0 were detected in the forward leg of the Double Vee Magnetic Spectrometer. The separation of Λ recoils from Σ0 recoils was accomplished by the missing-mass technique.
