This study reports the first measurement of the azimuthal decorrelation between jets with pseudorapidity separation up to five units. The data were accumulated using the D\O\ detector during the 1992--1993 collider run of the Fermilab Tevatron at $\sqrt{s}=$ 1.8 TeV. These results are compared to next--to--leading order (NLO) QCD predictions and to two leading--log approximations (LLA) where the leading--log terms are resummed to all orders in $\alpha_{\scriptscriptstyle S}$. The final state jets as predicted by NLO QCD show less azimuthal decorrelation than the data. The parton showering LLA Monte Carlo {\small HERWIG} describes the data well; an analytical LLA prediction based on BFKL resummation shows more decorrelation than the data.

We have measured the dijet angular distribution in $\sqrt{s}$=1.8 TeV $p\bar{p}$ collisions using the D0 detector. Order $\alpha^{3}_{s}$ QCD predictions are in good agreement with the data. At 95% confidence the data exclude models of quark compositeness in which the contact interaction scale is below 2 TeV.
