We have studied c (charm) and b (bottom) quark production at the TRISTAN energy region by tagging prompt electrons from the semileptonic decays. Electrons were identified over a wide momentum range between 1 and 29 GeV/c by a transition-radiation-detector in addition to a lead-glass calorimeter. The production cross sections of c and b quarks and the mean values of the fragmentation functions for c and b quarks were obtained as σc = 55.9±8.8(stat.)±7.9(syst.) pb, σb = 13.1±2.9(stat.)±1.0(syst.) pb, 〈xc〉 = 0.44±0.08(stat.)±0.04(syst.) and 〈xb〉 = 0.72±0.12(stat.)±0.08(syst.), respectively. The forward-backward asymmetries of the c and b quarks were also measured to be -0.57±0.16(stat.)±0.06(syst.) and -0.64±0.26(stat.)± 0.07(syst.), respectively. Both the cross sections and the forward-backward asymmetries of the c and b quarks are consistent with the standard model.
