A Preliminary Study of the Structure of b anti-bg Events Using Z0 Decays

Abstract

The structure of three-jet b anti-bg events has been studied using hadronic Z0 decays recorded in the SLD experiment at SLAC. Three-jet final states were selected and the CCD-based vertex detector was used to identify two of the jets as a b or anti-b. The distributions of the gluon energy and polar angle with respect to the electron beam were examined and were compared with perturbative QCD predictions. These distributions are potentially sensitive to an anomalous b chromomagnetic moment k. We measure k consistent with zero and set limits on its value.

Notes

The PDF version of this document was distilled from a PostScript file created from LaTeX source which may have used Type 3 fonts. The resultant PDF may be unreadable on the screen at the default viewing magnification, though the fonts will be legible at slightly higher magnifications. Despite the cosmetic problems resulting from the Type 3 fonts, such PDF files print without problems; likewise, the onscreen text is searchable and selectable.
