A search for direct CP violation in the nonleptonic decays of hyperons has
been performed. In comparing the product of the decay parameters, alpha (Xi
)alpha (Lambda), in terms of an asymmetry parameter, A(Xi Lambda), between
hyperons and antihyperons in the charged Xi --> Lambda pi and Lambda --> p
pi decay sequence, we found no evidence of direct CP violation. The paramet
er A(Xi Lambda) was measured to be 0.012 +/- 0.014.
