Abstract

A wide variety of final states are explored in the baryon exchange reactions π-d→(ps)X - pforward and π-d→(ns)X-pforward, with a sensitivity of 240 events per microbarn per nucleon. We find no statistically significant evidence for charge -2 exotic mesons or any other new structure over a mass range extending from below the nucleon-antinucleon threshold to about 3.2 GeV.
