A Study of K ~ Production in Z 0 Decays The OPAL Collaboration

The production of K0 mesons in e+ einteractions at center of mass energies in the region of the Z mass has been investigated with the OPAL detector at LEP. The rate is found to be 2.10±0.02±0.14 K0 , K0 per hadronic event. The predictions from the .JETSET and HERWIG generators agree very well with both the rate and the scale invariant cross section 1… CONTINUE READING
