Title: Theoretical study of parton fragmentation and evolution into hadrons

Abstract

Jet production via the QCD Compton effect ..gamma..q ..-->.. gq are investigated by using Monte Carlo methods to simulate complete three jet events for photo-nucleon interactions. This process provides unique possibilities for jet studies because the incoming photon transfers its entire energy to the final state gluon and quark jets. The authors present a number of predictions for photons in the range of energies presently available up to Tevatron energies and find that the QCD Compton effect will dominate over vector meson dominance at large gluon transverse momenta.
