Abstract

We present measurements of the production of high transverse momentum π0 and η mesons in pp and pBc interactions at 530 and 800 GeV/c. The data span the kinematic ranges: 1 <p T < 10 GeV/c in transverse momentum and 1.5 units in rapidity. The inclusive π0 cross sections are compared with next-to-leading order QCD calculations and to expectations based on a phenomenological parton-kT model.
