Title: Fragmentation contributions to J / ψ photoproduction at HERA

Here, we compute leading-power fragmentation corrections to J/ψ photoproduction at DESY HERA, making use of the nonrelativistic QCD factorization approach. Our calculations include parton production cross sections through order α 3 s, fragmentation functions though order α 2 s, and leading logarithms of the transverse momentum divided by the charm-quark mass to all orders in α s. We find that the leading-power fragmentation corrections, beyond those that are included through next-to-leading order in α s, are small relative to the fixed-order contributions through next-to-leading order in α s. Consequently, an important discrepancy remains between the experimental measurements of the J/ψ photoproduction cross section and predictions that make use of nonrelativistic-QCD long-distance matrix elements that are extracted from the J/ψ hadroproduction cross-section and polarization data.
