Abstract
The AGS Experiment 896 was designed to study strangeness production in Au-A u collisions at 11.6A GeV/c, in particular the formation of a six-quark di- baryon the H-0. Heavy ion collisions provide favorable conditions for the H -0 formation either via coalescence of two Lambda particles (owing to the l arge Lambda production cross section) or direct production from the possibl e formation of a quark-gluon plasma. E896 also measured strange meson and b aryon distributions from mid-rapidity. Preliminary results from this experi ment are presented as well as details of the expected sensitivity for the H -0 search.
