As one of the first examples one can mention the observation in 1976 of the decay of a charmed particle produced in a high-energy neutrino interactions in a Fermilab experiment [15].
In the search for charmed particle decays, a dedicated topological selection was applied to the collected net-scan data.
Figure 16 illustrates an event with a topology similar to that of a [tau] lepton, due to the production and decay of a charmed particle. The study of neutrino induced charm events has been one of the main side results of the experiment.

The already mentioned E531 experiment was originally proposed to study charmed particles produced in neutrino interactions.
Since charmed particles and the [tau] lepton have similar lifetimes, the detector was also well suited for the observation of the production and decay of charm, a source of background for the oscillation search but also an interesting physics subject per se.

Important studies deal with "charmed particles", which contain a charm or anti-charm quark.
ALICE physicists will report indications that the flow in the plasma is so strong that the heavy charmed particles are dragged along by it.
Noren's general approach in Charmed Particles, The Lighted Field, and Imaginary Light is quite consistent.
In Charmed Particles and The Lighted Field we are presented with relatively free-form arrays of distinct, intuitively arranged sequences: The series title's reference to the Surrealist parlor game "Le Cadavre exquis" is fitting.
Imaginary Light has a more obvious structure than Charmed Particles and The Lighted Field.
