OPAL_1997_S3396100

Strange baryon production in $Z$ hadronic decays at OPAL
Experiment: OPAL (LEP 1)
Inspire ID: 421978
Status: VALIDATED
Authors:
  • Peter Richardson
References:
  • Z. Phys. C, 73, 569--586 (1997)
Beams: e+ e-
Beam energies: (45.6, 45.6) GeV
Run details:
  • Hadronic Z decay events generated on the Z pole ($\sqrt{s} = 91.2$ GeV)

Measurement of the $\Xi^-$, $\Lambda^0$, $\Sigma^+(1385)$, $\Sigma^-(1385)$, $\Xi^0(1530)$ and $\Lambda^0(1520)$ scaled momentum distributions by OPAL at LEP 1. The paper also has the production cross-sections of these particles, but that is not implemented in Rivet.
