    We apply a quasi-model-independent strategy ("SLEUTH") to search for new high pT physics in ≈100 pb-1 of pp̄ collisions at √s = 1.8 TeV collected by the DØ experiment during 1992-1996 at the Fermilab Tevatron. Over 32 e μX, W+jets-like, Z+jets-like, and (l/y)(l/y)(l/y)X 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 pT 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.
