Determination of the Strong Coupling Constant from Inclusive Jet Data — Günter Quast, Klaus Rabbertz, •Daniel Savoiu, and Georg Sieber — Karlsruhe Institute of Technology
Inclusive jet production cross sections are among the most precise and well-understood jet-related observables measured at hadron colliders. In light of this, such measurements are an important asset for the determination of fundamental physical parameters, such as the strong coupling constant αs(MZ), to the high precision required by studies of QCD phenomenology. In this talk, we present a procedure for the determination of the strong coupling constant αs(MZ) from a combined set of measurements performed at multiple hadron colliders, as well as the results obtained.
