    Abstract

    We report a high statistics study of the inclusive decay properties of the charmed D0 and D+ mesons, and the first inclusive study of the charmed Ds+. The data are collected at s=3.77 GeV and s=4.14 GeV with the Mark III detector at the e+e- storage ring SPEAR. For each charmed meson species, the charged-particle multiplicity, the strangeness content of the final state, and the average π0 multiplicity are determined.
