Abstract : The purpose of the investigation was to perform an experimental and theoretical study of the reaction p+p yields d+positive pion in the BeV region. The differential and total cross sections for this reaction have been measured with scintillation counters for incident proton kinetic energies of 1.0, 1.3, 1.5, 1.7, 2.0, 2.5, and 2.8 BeV, using the external proton beam of the Cosmotron of Brookhaven National Laboratory. Values of the differential cross section are given for barycentric deuteron angles (theta), for O>cos(theta)>-.97 in small intervals of cos(theta). A theoretical calculation is made using the one-nucleon exchange peripheral model, and the data are compared with this and with the one-pion exchange model and the statistical model.
