The cross sections and forward-backward asymmetries of hadronic and leptonic events produced in ee collisions at centre-of-mass energies from 130 to 183 GeV are presented. Results for ee, μμ, ττ, qq̄, bb̄ and cc̄ production show no significant deviation from the Standard Model predictions. This enables constraints to be set upon physics beyond the Standard(More)
In this talk we discuss recent progress concerning precise predictions for the LHC. We give a status report of an application of the GOLEM method to deal with multi-leg one-loop amplitudes, namely the next-to-leading order QCD corrections to the process pp → V V + jet, where V is a weak boson W ± , Z. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN will probe our(More)
The TOTEM experiment is dedicated to the measurement of the total proton-proton cross-section with the luminosity-independent method and the study of elastic and diffractive scattering processes. Two tracking telescopes, T1 and T2, integrated in the CMS detector, cover the pseudo-rapidity region between 3.1 and 6.5 on both sides of the interaction point(More)
A measurement of the inclusive semileptonic branching ratios of b hadrons produced in Z decay is presented, using four million hadronic events collected by the ALEPH detector from 1991 to 1995. Electrons and muons are selected opposite to b-tagged hemispheres. Two different methods are explored to distinguish the contributions from direct b → Xℓν and(More)
This article discusses the physics programme of the TOTEM experiment at the LHC. A new special beam optics with β * = 90 m, enabling the measurements of the total cross-section, elastic pp scattering and diffractive phenomena already at early LHC runs, is explained. For this and the various other TOTEM running scenarios, the acceptances of the leading(More)
Silicon detectors for the Roman Pots of the the large hadron collider TOTEM experiment aim for full sensitivity at the edge where a terminating structure is required for electrical stability. This work provides an innovative approach reducing the conventional width of the terminating structure to less than 100 /spl mu/m, still using standard planar(More)
