Title: Longitudinal Structure Function F{sub L}: Perturbative QCD and k{sub T} -Factorization versus Experimental Data at Fixed W

Abstract

We use the results for the structure function F{sub L} for a gluon target with a nonzero transverse momentum squared at the order {alpha}{sub s} , obtained in our previous paper, for comparison with recent H1 experimental data for F{sub L} at fixed W values and with collinear GRV predictions in the leading-order and next-to-leading-order approximations.

  • We use heavy quark effective theory (HQET) and perturbative QCD to study the heavy-meson--light-vector-meson transitions involved in [ital D] and [ital B] decays. HQET is used to relate the measured [ital D][r arrow][ital K][sup *][ital l][nu] vector and axial-vector form factors at four-momentum transfer [ital q][sup 2]=0 to the [ital B][r arrow][ital K][sup *][gamma] tensor and axial-tensor form factors at [ital q][sup 2]=16.5 GeV[sup 2]. Perturbative QCD is then used to find matching conditions for the [ital B]-meson form factors at [ital q][sup 2]=0. A five parameter vector-dominance''-type fit of the two HQET form factors, consisting of single pole, doublemore » pole, and subtraction terms, is used to match the data at [ital q][sup 2]=16.5 GeV[sup 2] to QCD at [ital q][sup 2]=0. The values at [ital q][sup 2]=0 are compared with recent data on the exclusive rate for [ital B][r arrow][ital K][sup *][gamma] decay to extract a value for the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix element [vert bar][ital V][sub [ital t][ital s]][vert bar]=0.026, with 23% experimental uncertainty, and 29% theoretical uncertainty from higher order QCD effects and violations of heavy quark symmetry.« less
  • The analytic next-to-leading-order correction ({ital O}({alpha}{sub {ital s}}{sup 2})) to the longitudinal structure function in QCD is presented in the form of kernels that give {ital F}{sub {ital L}} after convolution with the partonic densities. This final complete result, which corrects previous partial calculations, can be easily used for phenomenological applications, which are briefly discussed.
  • We present calculations of the beauty photoproduction at HERA collider in the framework of the k{sub T}-factorization approach. Both direct and resolved photon contributions are taken into account. The unintegrated gluon densities in a proton and in a photon are obtained from the full CCFM, from unified BFKL-DGLAP evolution equations as well as from the Kimber-Martin-Ryskin prescription. We investigate different production rates (both inclusive and associated with hadronic jets) and compare our theoretical predictions with the recent experimental data taken by the H1 and ZEUS collaborations. Special attention is put on the x{sub {gamma}}{sup obs} variable which is sensitive tomore » the relative contributions to the beauty production cross section.« less
  • We calculate the cross section of charm photoproduction at HERA collider in the framework of the k{sub T}-factorization QCD approach. Our analysis covers the inclusive charm production as well as charm and associated jet production processes. Both photon-gluon and gluon-gluon fusion mechanisms are taken into account. The unintegrated gluon densities in a proton and in a photon obtained from the full Ciafaloni-Catani-Fiorani-Marchesini (CCFM), from unified Balitsky-Fadin-Kuraev-Lipatov-Dokshitzer-Gribov-Lipatov-Altarelli-Parizi evolution equations as well as from the Kimber-Martin-Ryskin prescription are used. Our theoretical results are compared with the recent experimental data taken by the H1 and ZEUS collaborations at HERA. Special attention is putmore » on the specific angular correlations which can provide unique information about noncollinear gluon evolution dynamics.« less
  • The current experimental status of the longitudinal structure structure function is discussed. In particular, recent measurements from the JLab Hall C program on proton, deuteron, and nuclei, which cover a range from moderate to large Bjorken x and 0.1 < Q{sup 2} < 4 (GeV/c){sup 2} are discussed.
