2 alpha_s and quark masses Inclusive observables H.Stenzel 2 Outline Experimental Input measurement pseudo-observables Determination of α s fit procedure QCD/EW corrections Systematic uncertainties QCD uncertainties experimental/parametric Improvements/Outlook

3 alpha_s and quark masses Inclusive observables H.Stenzel 3 Lineshape measurements at LEP Measurement of cross sections and asymmetries around the Z resonance by the LEP experiments ADLO and SLD interpretation in terms of pseudo- observables to minimize the correlation combination of individual measurements and their correlation inclusion of other relevant EW measurements (heavy flavour, m W,m t,...) global EW fits to constrain the free parameters of the SM... in particular constraints on the mass of the Higgs... but also determination of α s Results: Phys.Rep. 427 (2006) 257 PDG 2006 LEPEWG 2006

8 alpha_s and quark masses Inclusive observables H.Stenzel 8 Sensitivity of partial widths and POs to α s weak sensitivity for Γ l only through O(αα s ) corrections best sensitivity for σ 0 l u,c d,s Overall rather weak sensitivity of inclusive EW observables to α s for a 10% change of α s a ~0.3% change in the observables is obtained with respect to a nominal value O(α s = ) ratio to α s =0.1185

10 alpha_s and quark masses Inclusive observables H.Stenzel 10 Radiator dependence on α s α s – dependence of the widths dominated by the radiator dependence Vector part of the radiators identical for all flavours, axial-vector part flavour-dependent

11 alpha_s and quark masses Inclusive observables H.Stenzel 11 EW couplings dependence on α s Very weak dependence on α s through the mixed corrections, e.g. running of α using here H.Burkhardt, B.Pietrzyk, PRD 72(2005) derived from lower energy annihilation data via the dispersion integral

12 alpha_s and quark masses Inclusive observables H.Stenzel 12 Impact of higher order corrections Three main ingredients of the QCD correction: 1.the NNLO part 2.the quark mass corrections 3.the mixed QCD x EW terms What is their relative impact?

14 alpha_s and quark masses Inclusive observables H.Stenzel 14 Fit results – SM consistency

15 alpha_s and quark masses Inclusive observables H.Stenzel 15 Sensitivity to the Higgs Mass

16 alpha_s and quark masses Inclusive observables H.Stenzel 16 EW fit result for the Higgs Mass Claim: Theory uncertainty for Higgs does not include QCD uncertainties these are absorbed into the value of α s Purpose for the rest of this talk: evaluate QCD uncertainties

17 alpha_s and quark masses Inclusive observables H.Stenzel 17 QCD uncertainties for α s from EW observables Implementation of the renormalisation scale dependence in ZFITTER 1.running of α s (µ) 2.running of the quark masses 3.explicit scale terms in the expansion H.S., JHEP07 (2005) 013

18 alpha_s and quark masses Inclusive observables H.Stenzel 18 Scale dependence for radiators and couplings QCD Radiators EW couplings

19 alpha_s and quark masses Inclusive observables H.Stenzel 19 Scale dependence for the Pseudo-observables Evaluation of the PT uncertainty for the POs: scale variation Range of variation purely conventional, but widely used. Uncertainty for observable O defined as: Typical uncertainty 0.5 Depends obviously on α s. partial widths pseudo-observables

20 alpha_s and quark masses Inclusive observables H.Stenzel 20 dependence of the PO uncertainty on α s Increase of the observables uncertainty by a factor of ~2 for 0.11 < α s <0.13

21 alpha_s and quark masses Inclusive observables H.Stenzel 21 Evaluation of uncertainty for α s as obtained from an EW observable Technique based on the uncertainty-band Method: 1.Evaluate the observable O for a given value of α s 2.calculate the PT uncertainties for O using x µ scale variation at given α s 3.the change of O under x µ can also be obtained by a variation of α s 4.the corresponding variation range for α s is assigned as systematic uncertainty Uncertainty band method: R.W.L. Jones et al., JHEP12 (2003) 007

22 alpha_s and quark masses Inclusive observables H.Stenzel 22 Uncertainty for α s from EW observables For α s =0.119 the uncertainty is Strategy adopted by LEPEWG: calculate QCD uncertainty of the observables in the covariance matrix included in the fit. Result: Δα s =±0.0010

23 alpha_s and quark masses Inclusive observables H.Stenzel 23 Best strategy for α s LEPEWG 5-parameter fit to 18 high Q 2 -data α s = ± (nominal) α s = ± (incl. QCD error) 1-parameter fit (α s ) with all other SM parameters fixed to experimental values, m H =150 GeV m H 300 GeV

24 alpha_s and quark masses Inclusive observables H.Stenzel 24 Conclusion Wealth of electroweak data from LEP and elsewhere allows for precision measurements of Standard Model parameters Constraints of the Higgs mass (upper limit) Indirect determinations of m W and m t precision measurement of α s consistency tests of the SM For α s from EW observables the QCD uncertainty has been determined to ±0.0010, compared to α s = ± (exp) ± (QCD) An outstanding verification is expected from event-shapes at LEP and NNLO calculations for differential distributions, where an experimental uncertainty of 1% is achieved.
