Title: Precise determination of α s from the C -parameter distribution

We present a global fit for α s (m Z), analyzing the available C -parameter data measured at center-of-mass energies between Q = 35 and 207 GeV. The experimental data is compared to a N 3 LL' + $$\mathscr{O}$$ (α$$3\atop{s}$$) + Ω 1 theoretical prediction (up to the missing four-loop cusp anomalous dimension), which includes power corrections coming from a field-theoretical nonperturbative soft function. The dominant hadronic parameter is its first moment Ω 1, which is defined in a scheme which eliminates the $$\mathscr{O}$$ (Λ QCD) renormalon ambiguity. The resummation region plays a dominant role in the C -parameter spectrum, and in this region a fit for α s (m Z) and Ω 1 is sufficient. We find α s (m Z) = 0.1123 ± 0.0015 and Ω 1 = 0.421 ± 0.063 GeV with χ 2/d . o . f . = 0.988 for 404 bins of data. These results agree with the prediction of universality for Ω 1 between thrust and C -parameter within 1- σ .
