Title: Charged Particle Multiplicity in DIS

Charged Particle Multiplicity in DIS
  • Request for Preliminary

M. Rosin, D. Kçira, and A. Savin University of
Wisconsin L. Shcheglova Moscow State University,
Institute of Nuclear Physics July 5th,
2004 http//
  • Details http//
  • short introduction to the method
  • new measurement in Breit Frame
  • Plots for preliminary

Charged Hadrons Effective Mass
  • Measure HFS within ?? for best CTD acceptance
  • Measure charged tracks, reconstruct number of
    charged hadrons
  • Measure invariant mass of the system (Meff) in
    corresponding delta eta region.
  • Energy is measured in the CAL

The use of Meff as energy scale
  • For ep in lab frame, measure visible part of
    ltnchgt vs. visible part of energy available for
    hadronization Meff

Lab Frame
Visible part
Meff HFS measured in the detector where the
tracking efficiency is maximized
1996-97 Data sample
  • Event Selection
  • Scattered positron found with E gt 12 GeV
  • A reconstructed vertex with Zvtx lt 50 cm
  • Scattered positron position cut radius gt 25cm
  • 40 GeV lt E-pz lt 60 GeV
  • Diffractive contribution excluded by requiring
    ?maxgt 3.2
  • Track Selection
  • Tracks associated with primary vertex
  • ? lt 1.75
  • pT gt 150 MeV
  • Physics and Kinematic Requirement
  • Q2 da gt 25 GeV2
  • y el lt 0.95
  • y JB gt 0.04
  • 70 GeV lt W lt 225 GeV ( W2 (q p)2 )

735,007 events after all cuts (38.58 pb-1)
Event simulation
  • Ariadne 96-97 4.08
  • Matrix elements at LO pQCD O(?s)
  • Parton showers CDM
  • Hadronization String Model
  • Proton PDFs CTEQ-4D
  • Lepto 6.5.1
  • Including SCI
  • Also used Lepto without SCI

Luminosity of MC 36.5 pb-1
Kinematic Variables, Meff and Tracks
  • 96-97 data compared to ARIADNE and LEPTO
  • Both ARIADNE and LEPTO show good agreement
    for kinematics, Meff tracks

Comparison of ee-, pp, ep
  • agreement between ee- and pp for ltnchgt vs.
    invariant mass.
  • ltnchgt 2 vs. Q for ep measured in the current
    region of the Breit Frame (CRBF) agree with ee-
    and pp for higher Q
  • Lab frame points lie above ee- and pp, and above
    the previous ZEUS measurement in CRBF.
  • ARIADNE describes data dependence, LEPTO higher
    than the data, LEPTO w/ SCI even higher. Used
    both for correcting data systematic errors small
  • Agree with 1995 preliminary measurement of ltnchgt
    vs. Meff in lab frame
  • Request for preliminary

Lab frame ltnchgt vs. Meff in x bins
  • Check if ep vs. ee- and pp difference is due to
    quark and gluon distributions study x and Q2
  • x range split into similar bins as in previous
    multiplicity paper.
  • weak x dependence in both data and MC observed
    not sufficient to explain difference
  • Request for Preliminary
  • Q2 dependence? gt next page

Lab frame x and Q2 bins
  • Data described by ARIADNE
  • LEPTO above data
  • No Q2 dependence observed
  • Request for preliminary

Breit Frame - Change to scale Meff
  • Using Meff agreement between
  • Lab frame
  • Breit Frame Current Region
  • Breit Frame Target Region
  • Number of charged hadrons plotted vs. Meff
    shows similar behavior for the lab frame, and
    current target region of Breit frame
  • Request for Preliminary

Invariant Mass in the Current Region
Current Hemisphere
Invariant Mass Calculation
With the same energy of the particles, one gets
very different invariant mass of the system
depending on the system configurations.

Invariant Mass Construction
Current region Breit Frame
  • Assume system is collimated
  • Expect inv. Mass of CRBF to change significantly
    if we mirror each particle, with another
    particle with the same energy but opposite
  • M2 (EobsEmirrired)2-(pobs-pmirrored)2
  • Total number of particles increased by 2

Breit Frame - Change to scale Meff
  • Points lie slightly above the ee- points.
  • This approximation of invariant mass partially
    takes into account the real distribution of the
  • Similar studies for target region are hampered by
    the fact that the analogy between our target
    region and the target region in pp is a bit more
  • Request for Preliminary

Correlated Uncorrelated Systematics
Comparison to 2nd analysis
  • Agreement between 1st and 2nd analysis within 1
    for all preliminary plots
  • Lab Frame
  • Current Region Breit Frame
  • Target Region Breit Frame
  • X bins
  • X and Q2 bins
  • Current Region Breit Frame vs. 2E

  • Measured mean charged multiplicity in the Lab and
    Breit frame. Compared to predictions, to other
    ZEUS data, and ee-
  • Difference ep vs. ee- and pp
  • not due to experimental measurement.
  • not due to the choice of frame (Lab Breit).
  • not due to quark/gluon distributions.
  • is due to choice of scale (Q vs. Meff)
  • Plans for the future
  • Finish checks in the Breit frame.
  • Run on Lepto without SCI
  • Make results preliminary soon!
