OPAL_2003_I599181

Inclusive analysis of the b quark fragmentation function in Z decays
Experiment: OPAL (LEP2)
Inspire ID: 599181
Status: VALIDATED
Authors:
  • Simone Amoroso
References: 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)

A study of b quark fragmentation function is presented using inclusively reconstructed weakly decaying B hadrons. The measurement uses about four million hadronic Z decays recorded in 1992-2000 with the OPAL detector at LEP.
