Ju l 2 00 5 From the ISR to RHIC — measurements of hard-scattering and jets using inclusive single particle production and 2-particle correlations


Hard scattering in p-p collisions, discovered at the CERN ISR in 1972 by the method of leading particles, proved that the partons of Deeply Inelastic Scattering strongly interacted with each other. Further ISR measurements utilizing inclusive single or pairs of hadrons established that high pT particles are produced from states with two roughly backto-back… (More)
