Colour Reconnection CR: Colour rearrangement between differentcolour singlets Example: Hadronic decay ofB mesons B J/Y + X CRinWW decays: some hadrons cannot be assigned to either W CR is suppressed in the perturbative phase 1) Group structure of QCDrequires the exchange of2 gluons 2) CRmay be possible during hadronisation 1)Average multiplicity and particle distributions 2) W mass BRexp ~1% BRfullCR ~3-5% BRnoCR ~0.3-0.5%
CR Phenomenological Models DMW~O(100 MeV) • Sjöstrand & Khoze (PYTHIA): • Type I: (SK I) flux tubes • Probrecon • = 1-exp(-kIVol. Overlap) • Type II, II’ : vortex lines SK-I kI .18 0.66 1.26 2.34 4.9 100 • Gustafson & Häkkinen: minimizesstring length • Lönnblad(ARIADNE):CR between dipoles, min.stringlength • Webber et al. (HERWIG):CR if smaller cluster sizes
The Particle Flow Method No CR CR Cross-Talk between W systemsshould result in some depletionand/orenhancement of soft particles in some phase space regions All results are preliminary! • Select only events withwell- definedregions:low efficiency • Count the particles betweeneach pair of jets • Compare the Inside W’s and Between W’sparticle flow
