Total broadening


Definition of the observable

Given a set of $ n$ momenta $ p_i$, the thrust axis $ \vec{n}_T$ in (1) naturally divides particles in any event in two hemispheres, the right $ R$ and the left one $ L$. One can then define a right and left jet broadening

$\displaystyle B_R \equiv \sum_{i \in R} \frac{\vert\vec{p}_i \times \vec{n}_T\v...
...L} \frac{\vert\vec{p}_i \times \vec{n}_T\vert} {\sum_i \vert\vec{p}_i \vert}\>,$ (13)

The total broadening is then given by

$\displaystyle B_T \equiv B_R + B_L\>.$ (14)

This observable was resummed in [12].

Born event used for the analysis

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