"A High Statistics Search for the Theta-plus Pentaquark"
ABSTRACT:
There have been many reported sightings of exotic strange five-quark baryons in the past two years. Using the HyperCP dataset, which includes the largest K-short sample ever taken, we have searched for Theta-plus(1.54) -> K-zero + proton decays, with a spectrometer with excellent mass resolution.
