An experimental limit on the intrinsic charm component of the nucleon

Abstract:
Charm production has been studied through multimuon events produced in 250 GeV μ+-interactions. The measured dimuon cross section is in agreement with the photon gluon fusion model at low values of Bjorken x within statistical and systematic errors. At larger values of xBi the data do not support the magnitude of intrinsic charm used to explain hadro-production of charm. Upper limits on the intrinsic charm content of the nucleon are derived from the data. © 1982.
