Hadron Jets and Large Transverse Momentum Electrons at the SPS pp̄ Collider

  • G. Goggi


A preliminary analysis of the UA2 data collected at the SPS \(\bar pp\)p collider during the 1982 run (20 nb-1) is presented, with particular emphasis on large transverse momentum hadron jets and on electrons having the configuration expected from the decay of electroweak bosons. The data provide very strong evidence of two-jet dominance in events having a large transverse energy released in the central region. Four isolated electrons condidates having a transverse momentum in excess of 20 GeV/c are observed, with no significant transverse momentum balance within the UA2 acceptance. These events are consistent with the hypothesis W → eν.
