A measurement is presented of the two-jet differential cross section d3σ/dETd η1d η2 at center of mass energy √s =1800 GeV in pp̅ collisions. The results are based on an integrated luminosity of 86 pb-1 collected during 1994 to 1995 by the CDF Collaboration at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. The differential cross section is measured as a function of the transverse energy ET of a jet in the pseudorapidity region 0.1 < | η1| < 0.7 for four different pseudorapidity bins of a second jet restricted to 0.1 < |η2| < 3.0. The results are compared with next-to-leading order QCD calculations determined using the CTEQ4 and MRST sets of parton distribution functions. None of the sets examined in this analysis provides a good description of the data.
