The challenge of correlations in hadronic production of V0V0 pairs
Physikalisches Institut, Universität Heidelberg (),

We present a measurement of inclusive pair production (, , KS) by and of 340 GeV/c momentum and by neutrons of 260 GeV/c mean momentum in Cu and C targets. The pair production cross sections and the distributions of are compared for different pair combinations and beam particles. An attempt to simulate the observed xF-dependence of the production processes with PYTHIA was only partly successful.
