Heavy fermion production in the effective W approximation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We examine heavy fermion production in the effective W approximation. The rate for heavy quark production via W-gluon fusion is calculated in the effective W approximation and excellent agreement is found with the exact calculation. We also consider heavy lepton production from gauge boson fusion and compare it with the contribution from the Drell-Yan mechanism and from gluon fusion.
