Abstract

An investigation of Bose-Einstein correlations amongst like-charged pions produced in muon-nucleon interactions at 490 GeV is presented. On top of a broader enhancement, a steep increase in the correlations at small four-momentum differences between the two pions is observed which may be explained by the contribution from decays of resonances (ρ{variant}-mesons). A two-dimensional analysis discriminates between two different parametrizations of the Bose-Einstein effect, strongly favoring the Lorentz-invariant parametrization over a parametrization based on a Gaussian source distribution in space and time.
