QCD corrections to ee → WW → q1q̄1q2q̄2 are computed and presented in a form which allows to impose realistic cuts on the structure of the observed events. QCD radiation substantially modifies the jet–jet invariant mass distributions from which the value of the W mass will be extracted. When the range of allowed jet–jet masses is restricted, as it has been proposed in order to suppress non–WW backgrounds, the total cross section is also deeply affected. If all events are forced to four jets… CONTINUE READING
