Abstract

Relative yields of and charged K mesons are measured as functions of charged multiplicity in the central rapidity region for pp, dd, p, and collisions at sNN=3.15 and 44 GeV. No anomalous strange-particle production is observed in reactions relative to pp even at large multiplicities corresponding to events comprising less than 3.6×10-4 of the inclusive cross section.
