Abstract

We present a study of events with W bosons and hadronic jets produced in [Formula Presented] collisions at a center of mass energy of 1.8 TeV. The data consist of 51400 [Formula Presented] decay candidates from 108 [Formula Presented] of integrated luminosity collected using the CDF detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. Cross sections and jet production properties have been measured for [Formula Presented] to [Formula Presented] jet events. The data compare well to predictions of leading-order QCD matrix element calculations with added gluon radiation and simulated parton fragmentation.
