    Abstract

    We determine the invariant cross section Edσ d3p(s,x{norm of matrix},pp) for pp→ψ(3100)+X near x{norm of matrix}=0 at NAL and ISR energies using the assumption that all large p single leptons originate from the ψ. We adequately reproduce the single lepton data, and by suitable extrapolarion in x{norm of matrix} ensure agreement with the NAL ψ production data (x{norm of matrix}≳0.3). The magnitude of the resulting ψ production cross section is, however, roughly a factor of 3 larger than that observed by the recent CCRS-ISR experiment.
