Beyond the turmoil of renown.

With eyes, half-closed, and on horse,
Compose sagas, while they roam,
About day they vaguely crossed.

Great relic of a last and great migration!

Mezzetto, for the NOMAD Collaboration, talk at this meeting.
Summary of Neutrino 2000
NOMAD exploits a purely kinematic technique to identify the decays τ − → e− ¯νeντ , h− (π0 )ντ , and h−h+h− (π0 )ντ .
Tau2000 Conference Summary
ICANOE uses a liquid argon Time Pro jection Chamber (TPC) to reconstruct the τ decay with a kinematic technique similar to that of NOMAD.
Tau2000 Conference Summary
The xF dependence is consistent with the previous NOMAD result72 .
Status of Spin Physics - Experimental Summary
We note that there are also measurements3 on Λ polarization in νµN → µ−ΛX by NOMAD collaboration at CERN.
Spin Effects in High Energy Fragmentation Processes
Compared the NOMAD data (See Fig.3) with the above-mentioned theoretical results, we see a distinct difference: While the theoretical results go to zero when xF goes to zero, the data show that |PΛ | rises monotonically when xF decreases from positive xF to negative xF .
Spin Effects in High Energy Fragmentation Processes
But, in the NOMAD experiments, the incident energies of the νµ is 10 ∼ 50 GeV and W is only of several GeV.
