Thrust-major


Definition of the observable

Given a set of $ n$ momenta $ p_i$ and the direction of the thrust axis defined by the unit vector $ \vec{n}_T$ which maximises the sum in (1), the thrust major is defined as

$\displaystyle T_M \equiv \max_{\vec n\cdot \vec n_T = 0} \frac{\sum_i \vert\vec{p}_i \cdot \vec{n}\vert}{\sum_i \vert\vec{p}_i\vert}\>,$ (2)

The thrust major was first resummed at NLL accuracy in [3].

Born event used for the analysis

The hard scale (Q) is taken to be the center-of-mass energy.
