A Measurement of the Proton Structure Function F_2(x,Q^2) at Low x and Low Q^2 at HERAMar 20 1997The results of a measurement of the proton structure function F_2(x,Q^2)and the virtual photon-proton cross section are reported for momentum transfers squared Q^2 between 0.35 GeV^2 and 3.5 GeV^2 and for Bjorken-x values down to 6 10^{-6} using data ...

Observation of Events with an Isolated High Energy Lepton and Missing Transverse Momentum at HERAJun 09 1998A search for events with an imbalance in transverse momentum and with isolated high energy leptons has been carried out at the positron-proton collider HERA. One event with an e^- and five events with a mu^+- are found together with evidence for undetected ... More
