Title Hadronic Fragmentation Studies in EP Scattering at HERA
Abstract Deep inelastic ep scattering (DIS) data recorded in 1996 using the H1 detector HERA are analysed in the Breit frame of reference. A review of the theory relevant to this thesis and a description of the detector are included. The details behind the author-gauss publication of a test on the jet finding cone algorithm are given. This test was performed by examining the algorithm-gauss performance when it operates over a random distribution of particles in a detector. The resulting distributions, particularly the energy profiles, show similar trends to published spectra from various sources. The event shape variable Thrust (Tz) is studied in the current hemisphere of the Breit frame. A method is devised for obtaining the proportion of gluons in the proton (BGF events) as a function of Xbjorken, effectively the fraction of the proton-gauss four-momentum carried by the struck quark. This is achieved by comparison with Monte Carlo models. Rapidity, pseudo-rapidity and invariant energy spectra are examined in the Breit frame. Comparisons are made with various
