The following distributions are measured in the centre-of-mass frame of the photon dissociation ... More

Low Q^2 Jet Production at HERA and Virtual Photon StructureSep 16 1997The transition between photoproduction and deep-inelastic scattering is investigated in jet production at the HERA ep collider, using data collected by the H1 experiment. Measurements of the differential inclusive jet cross-sections dsigep/dEt* and dsigmep/deta*, ... More
