Abstract

In the process e+e- → hadrons, one of the effects of gluon emission is to modify the (1 + cos2θ) form of the angular distribution of the thrust axis, an effect which may be quantified by the longitudinal cross-section. Using the OPAL detector at LEP, we have determined the longitudinal to total cross-section ratio to be σLtot = 0.0127 ± 0.0016 ± 0.0013 at the parton level, in good agreement with the expectation of QCD computed to script O sign(α2 s). Comparisons at the hadron level with Monte Carlo models are presented. The dependence of the longitudinal cross-section on the value of thrust has also been studied, and provides a new test of QCD.

title = "Measurement of the longitudinal cross-section using the direction of the thrust axis in hadronic events at LEP",
abstract = "In the process e+e- → hadrons, one of the effects of gluon emission is to modify the (1 + cos2θ) form of the angular distribution of the thrust axis, an effect which may be quantified by the longitudinal cross-section. Using the OPAL detector at LEP, we have determined the longitudinal to total cross-section ratio to be σL/σtot = 0.0127 ± 0.0016 ± 0.0013 at the parton level, in good agreement with the expectation of QCD computed to script O sign(α2 s). Comparisons at the hadron level with Monte Carlo models are presented. The dependence of the longitudinal cross-section on the value of thrust has also been studied, and provides a new test of QCD.",

N2 - In the process e+e- → hadrons, one of the effects of gluon emission is to modify the (1 + cos2θ) form of the angular distribution of the thrust axis, an effect which may be quantified by the longitudinal cross-section. Using the OPAL detector at LEP, we have determined the longitudinal to total cross-section ratio to be σL/σtot = 0.0127 ± 0.0016 ± 0.0013 at the parton level, in good agreement with the expectation of QCD computed to script O sign(α2 s). Comparisons at the hadron level with Monte Carlo models are presented. The dependence of the longitudinal cross-section on the value of thrust has also been studied, and provides a new test of QCD.
