    Isolated photon + jet photoproduction as a tool to constrain the gluon distribution in the proton and the photon

    Full text link
    We analyse how the reaction gamma p -> gamma + jet + X can serve to constrain the gluon distributions. Our results are based on a code of partonic event generator type which includes full NLO corrections. We conclude that there are phase space domains in which either the gluon in the photon or the gluon in the proton give important contributions to the cross section, which should be observable in HERA experiments.Comment: 22 pages LaTeX, 14 figure

    Real and Virtual Photoproduction of Large-pt Particles at NLO

    Full text link
    In the first part of this paper we assess the possibility of observing the gluon distribution in a real photon by measuring the photoproduction cross section of large-pt photons. In the second part we calculate the virtual photoproduction of large-pt forward pi0. The theoretical results are compared with data and with BFKL-inspired predictions. These studies are done at the NLO approximation.Comment: Latex, 8 pages with 4 figure

    Is a Large Intrinsic k_T Needed to Describe Photon + Jet Photoproduction at HERA?

    Full text link
    We study the photoproduction of an isolated photon and a jet based on a code of partonic event generator type which includes the full set of next-to-leading order corrections. We compare our results to a recent ZEUS analysis in which an effective k_T of the incoming partons has been determined. We find that no additional intrinsic k_T is needed to describe the data.Comment: 23 pages LaTeX, 12 figure

    Isolated prompt photon photoproduction at NLO

    Get PDF
    We present a full next-to-leading order code to calculate the photoproduction of prompt photons. The code is a general purpose program of partonic event generator type with large flexibility. We study the possibility to constrain the photon structure functions and comment on isolation issues. A comparison to ZEUS data is also shown.Comment: 22 pages LaTeX, 15 figure

    Beyond leading logarithm parton distributions in the photon

    Get PDF
    I discuss the parton distributions in the photon and the constraints coming from the jet production in photoproduction and in photon-photon collisions

    A NLO calculation of the hadron-jet cross section in photoproduction reactions

    Get PDF
    We study the photoproduction of large-p_T charged hadrons in e p collisions, both for the inclusive case and for the case where a jet in the final state is also measured. Our results are obtained by a NLO generator of partonic events. We discuss the sensitivity of the cross section to the renormalisation and factorisation scales, and to various fragmentation function parametrisations. The possibility to constrain the parton densities in the proton and in the photon is assessed. Comparisons are made with H1 data for inclusive charged hadron production.Comment: 28 pages LaTeX, 14 figure

    Next-To-Leading Order Determination of Fragmentation Functions

    Get PDF
    We analyse LEP and PETRA data on single inclusive charged hadron cross-sections to establish new sets of Next-to-Leading order Fragmentation Functions. Data on hadro-production of large-p⊥p_{\bot} hadrons are also used to constrain the gluon Fragmentation Function. We carry out a critical comparison with other NLO parametrizations

    New NLO Parametrizations of the Parton Distributions in Real Photons

    Full text link
    We present new NLO sets of parton distributions in real photons based on a scheme invariant definition of the non-perturbative input. We compare the theoretical predictions with LEP data and a best fit allows us to constrain the parameters of the distributions. The shape of the gluon distribution is poorly constrained and we consider the possibility to measure it in photoproduction experiments. Three parametrizations which aim to take into account the scattering of LEP data are proposed. They are compared to other NLO parametrizations.Comment: 38 pages, 23 Postscript figures, fig. 6,7,8,9 improved, comparisons with other NLO parametrizations, added reference
