Data taken with the High Resolution Spectrometer detector at the SLAC storage ring PEP were used to test QED to fourth order in the coupling constant a. The experiment studied four-lepton final states produced at high Q' in e+e interactions at &s =29 GeV. All four final-state particles were detected at large angles with respect to the beam axis. We observed 17 e+e e+e, 24 e+e p+p, and 1 p+p p+p events with pair masses greater than 1 GeV/c for an integrated luminosity of 291 pb '. The complete a QED calculatio…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
