Abstract
The transverse momenta (p(x) ,p(y)) of projectile fragments produced by 1.0 A GeV Au-197 nuclei incident on Au and C targets have been measured. The me dium and heavy fragments have p(x) and p(y) distributions, which are wider than predicted by models. For the Au target the widths of the distributions are significantly larger than those for C, particularly for the heavy frag ments. The C distributions show a different gross structure, which may be d ue to the target-projectile size difference.
