QCD and the Hadronic Final State in Deep Inelastic Scattering at HERA

  title={QCD and the Hadronic Final State in Deep Inelastic Scattering at HERA},
  author={Michael Kuhlen},
The measurements of the hadronic final state in deep inelastic scattering at HERA are reviewed and discussed in the context of QCD. Covered are the general event properties in terms of energy flows, charged particle production, and charm and strangeness production. Quark fragmentation properties are studied in the Breit frame. Event shape measurements allow “power corrections” to be applied and the strong coupling αs to be extracted. Other αs measurements are based on dijet rates. Jet rates as… CONTINUE READING
