Abstract:

We report the results of two searches made on data recorded at the CERN SPS Proton-Antiproton Collider: one for isolated large-ET electrons, the other for large-ET neutrinos using the technique of missing transverse energy. Both searches converge to the same events, which have the signature of a two-body decay of a particle of mass not, vert, similar80 GeV/c2. The topology as well as the number of events fits well the hypothesis that they are produced by the proces Image , with W± →e±+ν; where W± is the Intermediate Vector Boson postulated by the unified theory of weak and electromagnetic inter- actions.
