QCD measurements with heavy quarks at LEP

Technical Report:

Abstract

Recent experimental results from LEP on strong interactions using heavy quarks are reviewed. By identifying bottom and charm decays, a model independent evidence for the string effect has been found together with a softer fragmentation function of gluons compared to quarks. The comparison of jet properties and the value of the strong coupling constant {alpha}{sub s} in bottom events and average events provides evidence for the flavour independence of QCD: {alpha}{sup b0tt0m}{sub s}/{alpha}{sub s}{sup udsc} = 1.00 {+-} 0.05 {+-} 0.06. The average scaled energy of charmed and bottom hadrons at Z{sup 0} energies is found to be <{chi}sub(D{sup +})> = 0.507{sup +0.012}{sub -0.015} {+-} 0.010 <{chi}sub(b{yields}l)> = 0.705 {+-} 0,008 {+-} 0.010. A comparison with results at lower c.m. energies exhibits significant scaling violations. These are interpreted in the context of various QCD calculations. (orig.).
