## Abstract

The production properties of K_{s}^{0}, {Mathematical expression} and K^{+}p interactions at 32 GeV/c are investigated using the final statistics of the experiment. We present total and semi-inclusive cross sections and aver-age multiplicities. Estimates are given of the diffractive dissociation contributions to total and differential cross sections. The x-, p_{T}^{-}, and transverse mass dependence of inclusive and semi-inclusive distributions is discussed as well as properties of "prompt"K_{s}^{0}'s. The ratio of "prompt"K_{890}^{+} (K_{890}^{0}) to "prompt"K^{0} cross sections is measured to be 1.03±0.12 (0.98±0.17). From a comparison of {Mathematical expression} production in K^{±}p interactions at 32 GeV/c, we estimate a strange sea-quark suppression of 0.26 ±0.02. The double differential cross sections of K_{s}^{0}'s is studied as a function of Feynman-x and p_{T}^{2}, and a Triple-Regge fit performed. The data are compared in detail to versions of the Lund-model for low-p_{T} hadronic collisions.
