Abstract

The multiplicity distributions of charged particles produced from π-, K- and {Mathematical expression} interactions with the nuclei Li, C, S, Cu, CsI, Pb at 40 GeV/c were studied. It was found that the linear relation D=a〈n〉+b is satisfied for the distributions of different kinds of secondary particles including knocked out protons. Consequently, the use of the scaling variable z′=(an+b)/(a〈n〉+b) ensures the scaling of the distributions with respect to the mass number A at least up to the second moment.
