HadronicW-decays at HERA

  • H. Baer

ep collisions at HERA will produce realW's with a cross section of almost 1 pb. We discuss to what extent the hadronic decays of theseW's will be visible above the QCD background. Using optimal cuts to enhance the hadronicW signal, a clearW peak should be visible after several years of running at HERA.
