Measurement of R and determination of the charged-particle multiplicity in e{sup -}e{sup +} annihilation at {radical}s around 10 GeV

Technical Report:

Abstract

We have measured the R value in non-resonant e{sup +}e{sup -} annihilation using the ARGUS detector at the storage ring DORIS II. At a centre-of-mass energy {radical}s = 9.36 GeV the ratio of the hadronic cross-section to the {mu}-pair cross-section in lowest order QED has been determined to be R = 3.46 {+-} 0.03 {+-} 0.13. In addition, we have measured the charged-particle multiplicities in non-resonant hadron production at {radical}s = 10.47 GeV just below the Banti B threshold and in {Upsilon}(4S) resonance decays. For the average charged-particle multiplicities in continuum events and {Upsilon}(4S) {yields} Banti B decays we obtain (n){sub cont} = 8.35 {+-} 0.02 {+-} 0.20 and (n){sub {Upsilon}(4S)} = 10.81 {+-} 0.05 {+-} 0.23.
