# Production of π0 and η mesons at large transverse momenta in pp and pBe interactions at 530 and 800GeV/c

Phys. Rev. D 01/2003; 68(5). DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevD.68.052001

ABSTRACT We present measurements of the production of high transverse momentum π0 and η mesons in pp and pBe interactions at 530 and 800GeV/c. The data span the kinematic ranges: 1<pT<10GeV/c in transverse momentum and 1.5 units in rapidity. The inclusive π0 cross sections are compared with next-to-leading order QCD calculations and to expectations based on a phenomenological parton-kT model.

[Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: We present results on the production of direct photons, {pi}{sup 0}, and {eta} mesons on nuclear targets at large transverse momenta (p{sub T}). The data are from 530 and 800 GeV/c proton beams and 515 GeV/c {pi}{sup -} beams incident upon copper and beryllium targets that span the kinematic range of 1.0<p{sub T} < or approx. 10 GeV/c at central rapidities.

##### Article: Do we understand the single-spin asymmetry for inclusive production in pp collisions?
[Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: The cross section data for p0\pi^0 inclusive production in pp collisions is considered in a rather broad kinematic region in energy Ös\sqrt{s} , Feynman variable x F and transverse momentum p T. The analysis of these data is done in the perturbative QCD framework at the next-to-leading order. We find that they cannot be correctly described in the entire kinematic domain and this leads us to conclude that the single-spin asymmetry, A N for this process, observed several years ago at FNAL by the experiment E704 and the recent result obtained at BNL-RHIC by STAR, are two different phenomena.
