Measurement of inclusive jet cross sections in photoproduction at HERA

Abstract.

Inclusive jet cross sections are measured in photoproduction at HERA using the H1 detector. The data sample of \(e^+ p \rightarrow e^+ + jet + X\) events in the kinematic range of photon virtualities \(Q^2 \leq 1 \mathrm{GeV}^2\) and photon-proton centre-of-mass energies \(95 \leq W_{\gamma p} \leq 285 \mathrm{GeV}\) represents an integrated luminosity of \(24.1 \mathrm{pb}^{-1}\). Jets are defined using the inclusive \(k_{\bot}\) algorithm. Single- and multi-differential cross sections are measured as functions of jet transverse energy E T jet and pseudorapidity \(\eta^{ jet}\) in the domain \(5 \leq E_T^{ jet} \leq 75 \mathrm{GeV}\) and \(-1 \leq \eta^{ jet} \leq 2.5\). The cross sections are found to be in good agreement with next-to-leading order perturbative QCD calculations corrected for fragmentation and underlying event effects. The cross section differential in E T jet , which varies by six orders of magnitude over the measured range, is compared with similar distributions from \(p \overline{p}\) colliders at equal and higher energies.
