Properties of Jets in Z Boson Events from 1.8 TeV p¯p Collisions Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • We present a study of events with Z bosons and hadronic jets produced in ¯p p collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 1.8 TeV. The data consist of 6708 Z → e+e- decays from 106pb-1 of integrated luminosity collected using the CDF detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. The Z+ ≥ n jet cross sections and jet production properties have been measured for n = 1 to 4. The data are compared to predictions of leading-order QCD matrix element calculations with added gluon radiation and simulated parton fragmentation. © 1996 The American Physical Society.
