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

abstract

  • We present a study of events with W bosons and hadronic jets produced in p̄p collisions at a center of mass energy of 1.8 TeV. The data consist of 51 400 W± → e± decay candidates from 108 pb-1 of integrated luminosity collected using the CDF detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. Cross sections and jet production properties have been measured for W + ≥1 to ≥4 jet events. The data are compared to predictions of leading-order QCD matrix element calculations with added gluon radiation and simulated parton fragmentation.
