Strangeness Production at low Q^2 in Deep-Inelastic ep Scattering at HERA
Presented by Dr. Khurelbaatar BEGZSUREN on 4 Jun 2013 from 11:30 AM to 11:50 AM
Session: Morning Session - X
The production of neutral strange hadrons is investigated using deep-inelastic scattering events measured with the H1 detector at HERA. The measurements are made in the phase space defined by the negative four-momentum transfer squared of the photon 7 < Q^2 < 100 GeV^2 and the inelasticity 0.1 < y < 0.6. The K_s and Lambda production cross sections and their ratios are determined. K_s production is compared to the production of charged particles in the same region of phase space. Predictions of leading order Monte Carlo programs are compared to the data.
