Abstract

Abstract Data are presented on the reactions K −p → Δ ++ + anything at 10 and 16 GeV/ c and π −p → Δ ++ + anything at 16 GeV/ c. In the K −p reaction, scaling is observed between 10 and 16 GeV/ c in the variable M 2/ s. The scaling occurs at relatively low values of M in marked contrast to the reaction π +p → Δ ++ + anything. This result can be explained by duality arguments on a triple Regge picture, since the exchanged reggeon-incident particle scattering is exotic. Comparison of the π −p reaction, which is similarly exotic, with the K −p reaction at the same energy gives further evidence for factorization in pomeron-dominated inclusive reactions.
