Abstract

We report here on a new high energy neutrino scattering experiment (FNAL E744) by the CCFR Collaboration, and present a preliminary analysis of 1529 neutrino produced- and 284 antineutrino produced µ+µ- events. These dimuons, with visible energy in the range 30 – 600 GeV, are part of a sample of about 794,000 charged-current events. The events are used to extract the strange quark magnitude and shape, and the semileptonic branching ratio of charm.
