Abstract

Four-fermion final states qqe+e- and qqμ+μ- from neutral-current interactions in e+e- collisions are studied in the OPAL detector at LEP at centre-of-mass energies from 183 GeV to 209 GeV. The data analysed correspond to a total integrated luminosity of about 650 pb-1 recorded from 1997 to 2000. Corresponding to the acceptance of the OPAL detector, a signal definition is applied requiring both leptons to have a scattering angle satisfying \cos θ\ < 0.95. Further requirements are made on the invariant masses of the fermion pairs. The extracted cross-sections for the processes e+e- → qqe+e- and e+e- → qqμ+μ- are consistent with the expectations from the Standard Model.

N2 - Four-fermion final states qqe+e- and qqμ+μ- from neutral-current interactions in e+e- collisions are studied in the OPAL detector at LEP at centre-of-mass energies from 183 GeV to 209 GeV. The data analysed correspond to a total integrated luminosity of about 650 pb-1 recorded from 1997 to 2000. Corresponding to the acceptance of the OPAL detector, a signal definition is applied requiring both leptons to have a scattering angle satisfying \cos θ\ < 0.95. Further requirements are made on the invariant masses of the fermion pairs. The extracted cross-sections for the processes e+e- → qqe+e- and e+e- → qqμ+μ- are consistent with the expectations from the Standard Model.
