Abstract
We present a study of inclusive direct-photon and pion production in hadron ic interactions, focusing on a comparison of the ratio of gamma/pi (o) yiel ds with expectations from next-to-leading order perturbative QCD. We also e xamine the impact of a phenomenological model involving k(T) smearing (whic h approximates effects of additional soft-gluon emission) on absolute predi ctions for photon and pion production and their ratio.
