Abstract

This thesis presents results of a search for anomalous production of long-lived weakly interacting neutral particles in 450 GeV/c proton-nucleus collisions. The search is based on calorimetric measurements of visible event energy, relying on the general signature of 'missing' energy-momentum which characterises the production of these particles. A comparison between experimental data and Monte Carlo predictions based on known sources shows no significant excess, allowing upper limits to be placed on new sources of such particles.
