 2018-08-1722:16 Longitudinal double-spin asymmetries for dijet production at intermediate pseudorapidity in polarized $pp$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}=200\text{}\text{}\mathrm{GeV}$ / Adam, J. ; Adamczyk, L. ; Adams, J. R. ; Adkins, J. K. ; et al We present the first measurements of the longitudinal double-spin asymmetry ${A}_{LL}$ for dijets with at least one jet reconstructed within the pseudorapidity range $0.8<\eta <1.8$.

With fourth-order derivative theories leading to propagators of the generic ghostlike $1/\left({k}^{2}-{M}_{1}^{2}\right)-1/\left({k}^{2}-{M}_{2}^{2}\right)$ form, it would appear that such theories have negative norm ghost states and are not unitary.
