We apply a quasi-model-independent strategy (“SLEUTH”) to search for new high [Formula Presented] physics in ≈100 [Formula Presented] of [Formula Presented] collisions at [Formula Presented] collected by the DØ experiment during 1992–1996 at the Fermilab Tevatron. Over 32 [Formula Presented] [Formula Presented] [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented] exclusive final states are systematically analyzed for hints of physics beyond the standard model. Simultaneous sensitivity to a variety of models predicting new phenomena at the electroweak scale is demonstrated by testing the method on a particular signature in each set of final states. No evidence of new high [Formula Presented] physics is observed in the course of this search, and we find that 89% of an ensemble of hypothetical similar experimental runs would have produced a final state with a candidate signal more interesting than the most interesting observed in these data. © 2001 The American Physical Society.
