Drell-Yan Versus Experiment

Abstract

Since the experiment which first measured dimuon production in hadron collisions1, several similar searches were started, and some of them proved amazingly successful2,3. The finding of new particles in the reaction
$$ pN \to {\ell^{+}}{\ell^{-}}+X $$
explains the flourishing of this kind of study, but the understanding of the continuum (the “background” under the J/ψ or the Γ) now proves to be of primary interest by itself, and this presentation will be restricted to this aspect of dilepton production. As we will see, lepton pair measurements provide a way of testing various ideas about the distribution of quarks inside the hadrons, and new results from the CERN Intersecting Storage Rings (ISR) will be used to test, in particular, the prediction of scaling and the connection with lepton deep inelastic scattering.
