The authors present a search for the production of excited or exotic muons ({mu}*) via the reaction {bar p} + p {yields} {mu}* + {mu} {yields} {mu}{gamma}+{mu} using 371 pb{sup -1} of data collected with the Run II CDF detector. In this signature-based search, we look for a resonance in the {mu}{gamma} mass spectrum. The data are compared to standard model and detector background expectations, and with predictions of excited muon production. We use these comparisons to set limits on the {mu… Expand
