15 April 2004M.J. Costa2 Contents Theoretical introduction Experimental strategy Results on the measured observables Comparison with theory Summary Motivations of the measurement. Quark mass definition. Observable: R n b (n=3,4 jets) b quark mass. s b / s. R n b at hadron level. R n at parton level. b
15 April 2004M.J. Costa3 Theoretical introduction The Standard Model has a set of free parameters. QCD Lagrangian: s = g s 2 /4 and quark masses are not predicted by the SM They need to be determined experimentally !
15 April 2004M.J. Costa4 Quark mass definitions Quarks are not observed as free particles in nature. Confined inside hadrons NOT A TRIVIAL DEFINITION! Theoretical convention is needed to define quark masses. The two most commonly used mass definitions are: Pole mass: M q Pole of the renormalized quark propagator Gauge and scheme independent Non-perturbative corrections give an ambiguity of order QCD Infrared renormalon Running mass: m q ( ) Renormalized mass in the MS scheme. Scheme and scale dependent. Additional mass definitions at threshold: m b kin ( )...

15 April 2004M.J. Costa13 Comparison with DELPHI analysis at threshold Measurement of moments of inclusive spectra in Semileptonic B-decays in DELPHI (preliminary): m b (m b ) = 4.26 0.13 GeV/c 2 First time one single experiment measures m b at two different energy regimes To understand data as a whole, the evolution of m b needs to be as predicted by the RGE in the MS-scheme m b kin (1 GeV)
15 April 2004M.J. Costa14 Summary New analysis for R 3 b : considerable improvement of syst. uncertainties Mass extraction depends on M b input in Pythia Uncertainties from R 4 b slightly higher, mass extraction limited by theoretical calculations 400 MeV. For the first time one single experiment can measure m b ( ) at two different energy scales Running Mass: (Cambridge) () 4 jets Running observed Most of dependence on M b input in generator cancels in the difference m b (m b )-m b (M Z ) = 1.39±0.30 GeV/c 2 (4.5 )
