ALEPH_2001_S4656318

Study of the fragmentation of b quarks into B mesons at the Z peak
Experiment: ALEPH (LEP 1)
Inspire ID: 558327
Status: VALIDATED
Authors:
  • Peter Richardson
References:
  • Phys.Lett.B512:30-48,2001.
  • hep-ex/0106051
Beams: e+ e-
Beam energies: (45.6, 45.6) GeV
Run details:
  • Hadronic Z decay events generated on the Z pole ($\sqrt{s} = 91.2$ GeV)

Measurement of the $b$-quark fragmentation function by ALEPH using LEP 1 data. The fragmentation function for both weakly decaying and leading $b$-quarks has been determined. The data used for the plots has been renormalised to give a differential distribution rather than the bin-by-bin average in HEPDATA.
