Measurement of the Differential Cross Section for Events with Large Total Transverse Energy in pp¯ Collisions at s=1.8 TeV Academic Article uri icon


  • We present a measurement of the differential cross section dσ/dΣEjetT for the production of multijet events in pp collisions where the sum is over all jets with transverse energy EjetT > EminT. The measured cross section for events with EjetT > 320 GeV is compared to O(α3s) perturbative QCD predictions and QCD parton shower Monte Carlo predictions. The agreement between the O(α3s) predicted and observed event rates is reasonable for EminT = 100 GeV, but poorer for EminT = 20 GeV. © 1998 The American Physical Society.
