Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We report on the observation of a narrow resonance at a mass of 2459 MeV/c2 in the final states K-++ and 0K-++. The mass, width, lifetime, and decay modes support the interpretation of a hadronically produced charmed strange baryon, the c+. We present our measurements of the lifetime, cross section, and relative branching fractions, and the A, xf, and pt dependence of the state.
