Abstract

Results are presented from a calorimeter study on the production of jets in large-ET proton-nucleus collisions at 400 GeV/c. Jet-like large-pT events from eight nuclear targets are seen with a special jet trigger. As previously observed, the cross section for such events increases slightly faster than the atomic number, much like in the production of large-pT single hadrons. Data on energy flows and multiplicities suggest that a heavy nucleus does not significantly widen the angular distribution of the beam remmants. In the central region the particle flow in hard nuclear collisions is similar to that in soft nuclear collisions.
