Abstract
Total cross sections for Sigma(-) and pi(-) on beryllium, carbon, polyethyl ene and copper as well as total cross sections for protons on beryllium and carbon have been measured in a broad momentum range around 600 GeV/c. Thes e measurements were performed with a transmission technique in the SELEX hy peron-beam experiment at Fermilab. We report on results obtained for hadron -nucleus cross sections and on results for sigma(tot)(Sigma(-)N) and sigma( tot)(pi(-)N), which were deduced from nuclear cross sections.
